UPCOMING DELEGATIONS

Upon return from your Solidarity Collective delegation you will be more deeply informed, motivated, and inspired. There is no replacement for meeting directly with communities, witnessing both the political and environmental landscape in which they organize, and listening to their stories of resistance- ones you nor the people you report back to, are likely to forget. If you are ready to jump into activism and advocacy in your community, we’ll be there to support you.

Solidarity Collective designs our Popular Education and Advocacy Program  to provide you with skills and on-the-ground experiences that you can leverage in your ongoing work for justice, dignity and collective well-being. Since 1983, we've connected more than 20,000 delegates with a grassroots analysis and with the urban and rural communities that lead struggles across the Americas!

The Solidarity Collective builds transnational grassroots solidarity to resist U.S. government and corporate policies that contribute to violence, poverty and oppression in the Americas. 

Our delegations take U.S.-based activists through an immersive and collectively transformative process with our local partners in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our delegations use a popular education pedagogy and focus on the struggle and principled leadership of Indigenous, African-descendant and Campesino land defenders, community organizers, and peacebuilders.

Every delegation is a unique and unforgettable experience. Each delegation has an itinerary with scheduled activities, meetings, training, and visits that are specific to the thematic framing and the group's participants. All delegations center the work, testimonies, and requests from local grassroots organisations that are committed to justice.

International Solidarity in Cuba: More than Medicine

December 6th- 15th, 2024

The small but mighty Caribbean Island of Cuba has long served as a nexus for movements, ideas, and tangible manifestations of international solidarity. Inspiring the lives of famed activists and intellectuals CLR James, Walter Rodey, George Lamming, just to name a few, Cuba has been a nation interconnected with the liberatory future of the world. From Cuba’s crucial role in the struggle against apartheid sending its military forces to liberate Angola, to its world-renowned humanitarian approach to medicine which continues to provide healthcare to the underprivileged of the planet to this day, solidarity with the oppressed is an essential part of the Cuban essence. That solidarity is inseparable from Cuba’s diverse culture, manifesting in its arts, sports, history, and people. Cuba accomplishes this all while under the chokehold of a several decade U.S. imposed blockade. Join the Witness for Peace Solidarity Collective on an educational delegation to learn how you can both show solidarity with the Cuban nation, and embody the spirit of internationalist principles in your own life and community.
