RACE, GENDER AND THE ENVIRONMENT IN CUBA

May 23-June 1st, 2025

About the Delegation

Join us on a journey to meet the diverse people of Cuba and learn about their history, successes, and challenges around the issues of race, gender, and environmentalism. How have concepts of race and identity evolved from the times when a million enslaved persons were forcibly brought to the island, through abolition, independence, and revolution, to ongoing attempts to end racism under socialism? What is the impact of the Family Code passed by referendum in 2022, in providing greater rights for women, same-sex couples, LGBTQ+ people, children, and elders? How does this island nation respond to climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss? How can we act in solidarity with Cubans suffering under the decades-long U.S. trade blockade?

Delegation Fee: $2400 
The delegation fee covers all in-country expenses (lodging, travel, meals, interpretation, etc.) along with pre-travel resources, reading lists, and support. The delegation fee also covers our international team’s expenses for delegation preparation and coordination. Any amount paid over the delegation fee will go to support delegation scholarship and sliding scales, helping to ensure the delegations are more accessible to everyone. A delegation payment of $2400 or more is ideal to cover all of your expenses and the broader delegation needs-- please pay this amount if you have institutional support or other financial resources.
