Our Alliance

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.

ACERE is proud to be supported by these committed organizations:

The Alliance For Cuba Engagement And Respect

The people of Cuba have long been suffering under an economic blockade by the United States that places restrictions on food, medicine, and even economic support from relatives. President Trump not only reversed President Obama’s move to strengthen relations but further tightened the blockade. Despite high hopes, President Biden has so far failed to bring about improved relations. After 60 years of failed policy, it is time to demand a different path forward.
