*Join the Venceremos Brigade 49th Contingent to Cuba in 2018*
Over nearly 50 years, thousands of US-based activists have traveled to Cuba as part of the Venceremos Brigade (VB), a historic project of solidarity, popular education, and relationship-building between the US movement and the Cuban Revolution.
Our work consists of

(1) manifesting friendship and solidarity with the Cuban people and their revolutionary process through voluntary work and educational exchange;

(2) challenging US policy toward Cuba (the blockade and travel ban) through
civil disobedience travel;

(3) building connections between people in the US movement through practice
in collective living and critical reflection
*The 49th Contingent of the Venceremos Brigade will go to Cuba for approximately 10 days between April 20 and May 6, 2018 (exact dates to be determined), in honor of International Workers’ Day and in association with the International May Day Brigade. *This year’s trip represents a unique opportunity to build deep relationships with radical change-making forces from across the US and across the world in the context of a society in
revolution, and to ensure that the new US administration’s escalating attacks are met with resistance on every front. It is also more simply an opportunity to see Cuba for oneself, to learn from a people engaged in the construction of a more just and equitable society, and to participate in that work. Finally, it is an opportunity to get to know the VB, and hopefully to maintain a connection with this project. In 2019, we will be organizing a mass brigade to celebrate our 50th year, and we hope that
those who travel on the 49th contingent will be inspired, and prepared, to bring folk from their organizing communities to be part of that historic event.
