Our Cuban Family

Westminster, Presbyterian Church

Exhibit continues through June 18

 

The exhibition, Our Cuban Family, features art and artifacts collected and commissioned over the years, and photographs by Westminster member Barbara LaValleur. The images tell of the beauty of the island, offer hints to the religious and cultural richness of the people, and of the joy experienced in our friendship with this, our Cuban family. 


Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1200 So. Marquette Ave., Minneapolis. Free and open to the public. Accessible. Hours: M-F 9 am to 5 pm, Sunday: 8 am to noon, and by appointment.


Minnesota legislation opposing the U.S. embargo of Cuba

SF 2183 and HF 2510 were introduced this session in the Minnesota Senate and House of Representatives. The bills’ title is “A Resolution urging the United State Congress to permanently repeal trade, financial, and travel restrictions to Cuba.” Although it is too late for action this session, ask your Senator and Representative to familiarize themselves with the bill for the 2018 session.
