The 27th Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade travelled to Cuba from November 20 to December 4, for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic and right after Cuba reopened borders to tourists. Brigadistas volunteered in community development projects, visited schools and hospitals, met with organizations including Cuba's women's federation and LGBTQ community, and joined Cubans on the street marching in defense of their revolution. Join brigadistas as they reflect on their experiences in revolutionary Cuba, and learn how you can join the next Che Guevara Brigade to Cuba too!

The evening will feature:

>> First-hand accounts from brigadistas recently returned from Cuba!
