Californians building bridges

About us


​Californians Building Bridges (CBB) is a 501 c (3) organization that supports people-to-people cultural, humanitarian and entrepreneurial exchange between the people of Cuba and California. CBB's leadership first began building bridges between California and Cuba in 2002. Since CBB's establishment in 2010, CBB has sponsored more than 40 delegation visits to Cuba. These programs offer a unique blend of experience and insight into Cuban policy, culture, art and the emerging private sector.  

CBB provides a unique opportunity for CA business leaders to gain an understanding of the current social and economic opportunities and to engage directly with the Cuban people. Currently, CBB sponsors an average of ten annual "people-to-people" educational exchanges to Cuba and one or more exchange visits by Cuban artists, musicians and entrepreneurs to the United States.
