About the Delegation

On this BIPOC delegation you will meet Cubans from all walks of life. We will visit and study Cuba’s urban and rural educational programs from primary to university levels including professional schools such as the Latin American School of Medicine and the National School of Arts. Included are meetings with professionals, families, elected officials, the neighborhood doctor, neighborhood organizing committees, and visits to artists’ collectives, museums, and historical sites. Also included is a visit to Matanzas province. A popular visit is to an urban organic garden/farm and market.
