About the Venceremos Brigade:
The Venceremos Brigade is a Cuba solidarity project that has been in existence since 1969. It is the oldest Cuban solidarity project in the world. It was formed as a coalition of young people to show solidarity with the Cuban Revolution by working side by side with Cuban workers, challenging U.S. policies towards Cuba, including the United States embargo against Cuba. Over the last four and half decades, the VB has given over 9,000 people the opportunity to experience Cuba.
