Cuba's recently passed Family Laws make the Cuban Constitution one the most progressive in the entire world -- redefining marriage, the concept of families, and the rights of members of families.
The changes include legalizing same-sex marriages and same-sex adoption, the rights of grandparents, the rights of children to be loved and happy in their lives, and the responsibilities of the people who care for them to ensure those rights are guaranteed.
Join us in this discussion to learn about the grassroots organizing by LGBTQI organizations and other mass revolutionary organizations in Cuba and how the passage of the nationwide referendum was a result of thousands of discussions held all over the country in a show of participatory democracy in Cuban society.
Speakers include longtime solidarity organizers with Cuba and Cuban officials. Additional information will also be available on how you can travel to Cuba and learn about Cuban society on upcoming delegations.
This workshop will be simultaneously translated into Spanish.
