The U.S./Cuba Labor Exchange



About

We are an association of individuals who act on the belief that the best way to learn about working people around the world is through meeting with them face to face.

Many methods are used to build international solidarity between working people—pamphlets documenting activities are published, international conferences are organized, tours of the United States are organized for union organizers from other countries when the U.S. government allows entry visas, and we travel to other countries to meet face to face with our counterparts—working women and men involved in building a better life for ourselves and our children.

We encourage you to get involved in building the better world that is not only possible—but necessary. Only through the active effort of poor and working people can we win a world without war where health care, education, housing, utilities, and jobs are a right for all not a privilege for the few.[1]
