Delegation Fee: $2,400 fee + airfare + $100 visa*

Delegation fee covers all meals, lodging, transportation, interpretation, and reading and activist tools

 

Sliding Scale: $1400-$2400

The delegation fee covers all in-country expenses (lodging, travel, meals, interpretation, etc.) along with pre-travel resources, reading lists, and support. The delegation fee also covers our international team’s expenses for delegation preparation and coordination. Any amount paid over the delegation fee will go to support delegation scholarship and sliding scales, helping to ensure the delegations are more accessible to everyone. A delegation payment of $2400 or more is ideal to cover all of your expenses and the broader delegation needs-- please pay this amount if you have institutional support or other financial resources.

 

Application and $300 deposit due August 1

Remaining balance due October 1

*Partial scholarships are available*

Essential workers, frontline workers, nurses, social workers, educators, first-responders--those who support healing and hold trauma--will exchange with Cuban organizers, leaders, and nature lovers to share strategies for healing, community organizing, environmental justice and nurturing. Peace-makers and healers from the U.S. and Cuba will focus on the effects of the U.S. Blockade as the primary obstacles to peace. Explore how capitalism, imperialism and environmental racism challenge work for justice across the Americas. Join us in building practices and campaigns that will advance well-being, economic, and food sovereignty.

Your Ground Costs for a Solidarity Collective Delegation include almost everything in the 10 day journey
