Facts About Cuban Exiles

In August 1982, Facts about Cuban Exiles (FACE) was founded “to defend the image of the Cuban Exiles.” The incorporating group was active in many other civic and community organizations and represented a cross section of the Cuban diaspora in Miami.


FACE’s mission is “to promote, foster and improve the goodwill reputation and image of those persons of Cuban origin, and their descendants, in the United States xanax and the world, who have sought refuge outside of Cuba due to existing political conditions” and works toward the development of mutual understanding and cooperation with other groups in the community. FACE has encouraged fair and balanced media coverage and has responded to biased or erroneous reports. It periodically publishes information concerning Cuban exiles.


Since 1984, has presented Excellence Awards to deserving individuals and institutions for their contributions to a better and more just society.
