A Site For A Free Cuba
What you can do to help
We get a lot of questions about who we are, how one can join, and what one can do to help.
We support dedicated freedom seeking scholars by providing a means to publish their thought and action provoking writings in our website A Site For A Free Cuba. We only publish people who have independently proven their talent and virtue.
We sponsor the organization Cuba Liberty Project. In the Cuba Liberty Project formal voting office is by invitation only, and we only invite people who have independently proven their talent and virtue. We want to remain true to our mission of strict free enterprise compliance, and not to dilute it with anyone who is not on the same page.
We do not publish printed material, or send newsletters out by mail. We choose to avoid the costs of doing that, and publish everything in electronic form, mainly over the Internet. It is more important to develop educational materials, to litigate, to organize, or to do other things than spend our limited resources on printing and postage.
We do not solicit, and have not received, financial support from governments, large institutions, or special interest groups. That is not to say that we could not use more funding. What we have done so far has been done by unpaid volunteers. If we had financial support we could do a lot more and get it done faster. We know how to put any amount of money to its best possible use, to leverage the political system in creative ways. We would know what to do to turn the course of history toward a better future for Cuba.
What we would do if we received a substantial amount of money is similar to the
Grant Proposal of the Constitution Society.
If you support what we are doing, and want to help, you may send donations. Don't send cash through the mail, of course, but money orders are good. Make them payable to "Lillian Simmons, trustee for A Site For A Free Cuba". Do not make checks payable to "A Site For A Free Cuba". We don't have a bank account for A Site For A Free Cuba, don't intend to get one, and can't accept checks made payable only to "A Site For A Free Cuba".
Donations are not tax-deductible. We do not seek any special tax status for A Site For A Free Cuba, because doing so would subject us to unconstitutional and undue influence by the government.
Donations can be mailed or sent by courier to the main address on our home page at http://xld.com/Cuba/Cuba.htm, which is

If you can't afford to support us financially, do what you can in other ways. You might organize a local group of activists and scholars, and link it to others across the nation and beyond. You might investigate wrongdoing. Recruit whistleblowers. Engage in litigation. Develop educational materials. Put up a web site specializing in some problems and their solutions. Speak to public gatherings, or set up a speaker's bureau. Organize street demonstrations. Place ads in newspapers and on radio or TV. Hand out flyers. Call in to talk radio with a focused reform message. Develop your skills. Acquire the tools you will need.
We can offer some guidance in doing these things, but it is up to you to do it. If nothing else, you can go door to door in your own neighborhood. Be persistent. Never give up. Just devote a couple of hours each day, and get others to do the same.
Remember, it has taken a century for the situation to deteriorate to the point it is at today in Cuba. We won't reverse that decline quickly, and no one can do it by himself. Aim for small victories. Every person you recruit for the cause of freedom is a victory. Many of them will drop out, but if we can recruit them faster than they drop out, we will eventually prevail.
