Join us on a delegation to learn directly from the Cuban people about their complex and dynamic society. What advances have been made in areas of education, healthcare, the arts, and sustainability? What can the rest of the world learn from Cuba? What challenges remain? What impact do U.S. policies have on the lives of Cuban people? How can we best work in solidarity with the Cuban people? What is the state of human rights, freedom of expression, and economic opportunity in Cuba? What do the Cuban people want for their own future?

 

This people-to-people delegation will explore questions such as these through conversations with doctors, professionals, families, educators, artists, and neighborhood organizing committees. Visits to artists' collectives, urban agriculture projects, museums, and historical sites provide an on-the-ground immersion into Cuban life and culture.
