Meeting at El Mejunje

A signal accomplishment of the September 2014 delegation to Cuba was a gathering of lesbians and allies at El Mejunje in the historic city of Santa Clara to launch the work of the Lesbian and Allies Project. In March 2015, US Women & Cuba Collaboration is organizing a national U.S. speaking tour for Isel Calzadilla, founder of the Santiago lesbian group Las Isabelas.  If you are interested in hosting or working on this tour, please contact us.
