Witness for Peace People-to-People Delegations to CUBA
Witness for Peace is able to organize delegations that will offer a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities that will result in meaningful interaction between delegates and Cubans. Now, even more people will be able to benefit from the unique opportunity to visit our island neighbor and learn more about changing U.S./Cuban relations.
They have a two-year license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) allows Witness for Peace to take delegations to Cuba under the "People-to-People" category. This travel category provides for educational exchanges when those exchanges promote people-to-people contact. Delegation themes range from arts and culture, education and law to sustainable agriculture and health care.
For the first time since 2005, any U.S. citizen can travel to Cuba — provided he or she is part of an authorized program with a license from the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control. No longer do you need to be part of an official research project to experience Cuba.
Witness for Peace is an organization with more than 30 years of experience leading delegations of U. S. Citizens to Latin America.
