Alicia Jrapko, PRESENTE! Print E-mail

January 11, 2022 brought the sad news of the passing of a dear friend of the Cuba solidarity movement – Alicia Jrapko, a passionate, dedicated activist in the United States.

The Canadian Network on Cuba expresses its sadness at the loss of this stalwart defender of Cuba.

Alicia was a major driving force in the struggle to free the Cuban 5 Heroes, often visiting Gerardo Hernández in prison. Her work with Pastors for Peace and young medical students going to the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) in Cuba was just one expression of her generous support for Cuba.

Her indefatigable commitment to the cause of social justice and Cuba was reflected in her dedication to building the National Network on Cuba (NNOC), serving as a co-chair since 2011. Alicia’s stirring voice at numerous conferences and international meetings inspired solidarity activists around the world.

The Canadian Network on Cuba expresses its deep condolences to Alicia’s life partner, Bill Hackwell, and to her three children and six grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by her many friends in Canada.
