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?

Delegates will:

  • learn from expert popular educators about their models, workshops, and trainings

  • visit a homeopathic pharmacy / create and apply herbal remedies

  • exchange with an energy healer and medical practitioner

  • learn about long-term adaptation and resiliency plans

  • hear from a leading Cuban economist about social spending during crises and social programs

  • study realities of US intervention in Cuba and the Caribbean at a historical memory museum

  • tour urban and rural agro-ecological cooperative projects and learn how they work

  • exchange with youth permaculture organizers and promoters

  • interface with Afro-Cuban popular educators and share cultural work and strategies

  • delve into an eco-community focused on reforestation, vegetarianism and natural products
