About the Delegation

This delegation will focus on Cuba’s humanist model and its far-reaching impacts across all sectors of society. We will examine how Cubans have challenged colonialism, capitalism, and imperialism within its revolutionary history. Cuba, as an Afro-descendant majority nation, has made significant advances for the historically oppressed within its own borders and internationally via medical brigades, educational cooperation, and cultural exchanges. As a result, this delegation will explore themes of wellness, holistic healing, and healthcare. This delegation is designed for educators, healers, farmers, artists, and activists of color. As such, our facilitation will draw from social justice, anti-racist, and anti-imperialist pedagogies. We seek to build authentic and collaborative relationships between Cubans and U.S. delegates in an effort to strengthen people-to-people ties
