The Coalition of Cuban-American is an organization whose membership is devoted to denouncing human rights violations in Cuba and disseminating information about those violations Cuba throughout the world. In addition, the Coalition advocates for the Cuban people, in particular peaceful dissidents, political prisoners, women, and children whose human rights are denied by the Cuban government.

Begun in September, 1995, The Coalition is based in Miami, Florida, but its membership includes women from across the United States and Europe. Members of this organization have made presentations on behalf of Cuban prisoners of conscience at academic conferences and international forums. In addition, they disseminate information regarding the situation of Cuban prisoners of conscience to governments, human rights agencies, the Organization of American States, the United Nations, religious organizations, and other non-governmental agencies. Furthermore, the Coalition is responsible for the translations and dissemination of many testimonies written by prominent dissident leaders in Cuba that highlight human rights violations and other acts of repudiation carried out against them by the Cuban government.
