Join us on a Cuba delegation focused on art, healthcare, senior living, and agroecology in December 2022. Get to know Cubans from all walks of life. This delegation will focus on the triumph of the Revolution and how Cubans have spent over six decades building a socialist society. Discuss with Cubans the effects of recent changes in the US and relations including the longstanding U.S. Blockade on Cuba. Today, in Cuba healthcare, education, food, housing, culture, unions, sports, and protagonism are all rights shared by all. Included in this delegation are meetings with professionals, families, educators, artists, and neighborhood organizing committees. Visits to artists' collectives, farms, museums, and historical sites provide an on-the-ground immersion into Cuban life and culture. All are welcome to join!
