Help Open Travel to Cuba Now!

As AIESECers, we are the biggest advocates of sharing cultures across borders, visiting and exploring a completely new culture, introducing others to our world, and embracing the differences of diversity. The AIESEC exchange network is comprised of over 100 countries and counting. Can you imagine not being able to visit another country that you want to learn more about?

Especially as AIESECers who are Americans, we have travel access to any part of the world - that is, except Cuba. It's about time the U.S. ends its Cuban travel ban and give Americans the right to travel to and experience a country that we have only had access to vicariously.

You can help change this through the campaign, www.OpenCuba.org. Petition for U.S. leaders to end the Cuban travel ban now.

With the current administration showing a willingness to cooperate with Cuba on new grounds, it is imperative to continue the momentum. Support www.OpenCuba.org and help further AIESEC's mission in opening up minds through the exchange of culture.

AIESEC US 360 Campaign

Most, if not all AIESECers, can say that AIESEC impacted their lives in an incredible way. Whether gaining an amazing professional experience, making friends for life, or becoming open to a culture you've never once thought about, AIESEC made a difference.

As alumni, there are many ways to get involved and help current AIESEC members get the most out of their experience. AIESEC US has a new campaign and goal for incoming exchanges in 2009/2010: The 360 Campaign: 360 incoming exchanges through 36 LCs.

Join the campaign today and help AIESEC through your connections, experience, and knowledge. It's simple, just sign up with your name, LC, contact info, and a bit about your AIESEC experience. Make a difference by leveraging your network to support AIESEC. Watch the Youtube video featuring current AIESECers on the campaign and join the 360 Campaign!
