The Cuban American National Foundation aimed at celebrating the Cuban people while promoting their freedom and human rights.
Located in Miami’s Little Havana District, the Cuban-American National Foundation seeks to bring democracy and justice to the island, and promotes the well-being and human rights of every Cuban. Founded by Cuban exile Jorge Mas Canosa in 1981, the Cuban-American National Foundation focuses on key issues such as the protection of human rights in Cuba, the connection between those on and off the island, and improving infrastructure.
The foundation partners with multiple groups of activists on the island, most notably the famous Damas De Blanco. With projects on the island, and off, the foundation aims to provide the necessary tools to empower the Cuban people, and protect their basic human rights.
