ACERE, the Alliance for Cuba Engagement and Respect, is a coalition of organizations and individuals that believe that sanctions and economic blockades are not the right answers to resolve conflicts or ideological differences between countries.

Some members work at the grassroots level while others are engaged in advocacy efforts.

Some organizations work inspired by the values of their faith, while others help promote the interests of the business community or are concerned about their right to freely travel to the island.

All members of ACERE uphold the principles of coalition and believe that engagement rather than isolation and intervention is the solution in promoting friendly neighbor relations between the two countries.
