Center for a Free Cuba is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
We’re fighting for a brighter future in Cuba by promoting a peaceful transition to democracy and seeking basic human rights for the 11 million people on the island.
Founded in 1997, The Center for a Free Cuba (CFC) is an independent, nonpartisan advocacy organization, made up of professionals and human rights volunteers, to put more resources in the hands of Cubans.
The CFC gathers and distributes timely information about Cuba and Cubans to relevant to media, international human rights organizations, governments, civic, religious, and labor leaders, while participating in the national debate on Cuba and providing humanitarian assistance on the island.
