The Cuban Reality

For our Friendship Force of Sacramento July meeting, our keynote topic will be a look at Cuba: the current reality of the relationship between Cuba and the United States, legal travel to Cuba and what is the reality of Cubans living in Cuba.  Each American presidential change brings a new policy change between Cuba and the United States. COVID has brought new challenges to Cuba in many ways. Cuba has created their own vaccines and 92% of their population is vaccinated.

Our speaker, Paul Bardwil, is the owner and president of Global Educational Facilitation. Bardwil has been directing educational travel since 1995 to Mexico, Cuba, Spain, Guatemala and Italy. Bardwil is the only American working directly with the ministry of culture in Cuba. Bardwil has worked with Sac. State, Sonoma State, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, University of Texas at Arlington, Texas Woman’s University, and University of North Texas to name a few. Bardwil also has had the pleasure of taking Jeannie Shultz, the widow of Charles Schulz, to Cuba and facilitated Snoopy being painted in a well-known mural art project in Havana, Cuba.

Stay after the meeting for some other club business and announcements.
