Cuba v. Rigal

On April 25, 2017, the Cuban government sentenced pastor Ramón Rigal and his wife Adya to a year in prison and house arrest—just for teaching their two children at home. The Rigals have appealed their case, applied to the United States for assistance, and reached out to homeschoolers around the world for support.
