A History of Service
Mavel Ruiz was born in Santa Clara, Las Villas, Cuba on January 28th. She won “La Canastilla Cubana” for being one of the first children born on the same day as Cuban Patriot Jose Marti. The Cuba that Marti had so bravely died for was giving way to oppression and executions. Her uncle, Andres Sanchez, took to the ocean to avoid arrest for his counter-revolutionary activity. Once in the United States, Mr. Sanchez joined the army and continued to fight for a democratic Cuba. He filed a petition to bring his family, including Mavel, to the United States.
On the night of March 3rd 1966, communist soldiers evicted Judge Ruiz and her parents from the home and land they had occupied for generations. The next day, they boarded a flight to Miami with only the clothes on their backs. Mavel would never see her grandparents again. The refugees were taken to the Freedom Tower in Downtown Miami where they were greeted by those who came before.
