We brought you Aperture Cuba in Atlanta and New York to piece together the Cuban reality. Now, there’s an opportunity to keep learning and thinking about the Cuban reality at Miami’s “O Miami Poetry Festival“!
Apart from learning more about the vibrancy of Miami-based poets and writers, there are three Cuba related events to attend. At these events Roots of Hope will also be hosting a tech drive.We’ve heard from many around the country how the TedX stlye talks at Aperture Cuba in Atlanta and NYC have empowered you to want to make a difference in the lives of Cuban youth.
At our Tech4Cuba drop boxes at “O Miami Poetry Festival” you can make that difference by donating your used cells, usbs, tablets or laptops. It’s as simple as changing the life of one person to make a monumental difference and YOU have the power to do that.
Come meet us and see how you can empower Cuban youth! Our main Tech4Cuba drop box location is located at:
