In July there will be a week of Cuba Caravan events in 10 different regions nationally, including Santa Cruz to challenge the US blockade by bringing high-value material aid. They will go to Santiago de Cuba to witness and participate in the long-term reconstruction of the city after its devastation by Hurricane Sandy last October. As part of the event we will be honoring Sandino Gomez for his outstanding contribution over many years as a volunteer with the  Cuba Caravan, the Watsonville Brown Berets, and serving on the staff of the Resource Center for Nonviolence.
