RWF’s mission is to promote peace, unity and hope by leading the LGBTQ movement in participating in humanitarian relief efforts.
Rainbow World Fund is hosting a volunteer trip to Cuba and is looking for volunteers to help at a cocktail party fundraiser.

The event is a Cuban themed cocktail party with live Cuban music, drag queens and hosted by LGBTQ Civil Rights Leader Cleve Jones who is traveling to Cuba with RWF this May to receive a humanitarian award.
They need help:
In the kitchen prepping food
Passing hors d'oeuvres
AND there is still space for folks to join the trip itself!
“Rainbow World Fund has been visiting Cuba since 2012. Our journey is educational, focusing on Cuba's history, politics, and spirituality. We will learn from the Cubans about the realities of their country. We'll visit projects that serve the Cuban people and meet with members of the LGBTQ community, church leadership, artists, and leaders in many fields. We will learned about Cuban history, from its colonial past to its revolutionary present, plus how the complex historical relationship between the U.S and Cuba remains ever-changing. During our visit you will gain insight into the struggles and hopes of the Cuban people. We will visit places such as medical clinics, programs that serve the elderly, art institutions, schools, and other historical and cultural sights. The many highlights include participating in the LGBTQ Pride celebrations in Havana.”
