Cuba is an island home to 11 million people and more social and economic services than anywhere else in the Caribbean. Learn how a socialist country organizes itself to provide social services, education, health care, food, housing, safety and access to the arts to its citizens in an equitable manner? Explore the many ways that this island nation, just 90 miles from our shore, has met these challenges for over 60 years in the face of unrelenting opposition from its neighbor to the north. Included in this delegation are meetings with doctors, 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.
