On this 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 two-day visit to Matanzas province and the Zapata peninsula. A popular visit is to the Alemar Cooperative, an urban organic garden/farm.

It is more clear than ever that many countries around the world - including the United States - are capitalizing from the on-going militarization of Honduras, while they gain interest in other markets of oppression world-wide.

This delegation will take an in-depth look at the daily realities for Hondurans while exploring the connections between race, class, and money, from the birth of U.S. colonialism until today.

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.

Upon return from your Solidarity Collective delegation you will be more deeply informed, motivated, and inspired. There is no replacement for meeting directly with communities, witnessing both the political and environmental landscape in which they organize, and listening to their stories of resistance- ones you nor the people you report back to, are likely to forget. If you are ready to jump into activism and advocacy in your community, we’ll be there to support you.

Solidarity Collective designs our Popular Education and Advocacy Program  to provide you with skills and on-the-ground experiences that you can leverage in your ongoing work for justice, dignity and collective well-being. Since 1983, we've connected more than 20,000 delegates with a grassroots analysis and with the urban and rural communities that lead struggles across the Americas!

The Solidarity Collective builds transnational grassroots solidarity to resist U.S. government and corporate policies that contribute to violence, poverty and oppression in the Americas. 

Our delegations take U.S.-based activists through an immersive and collectively transformative process with our local partners in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our delegations use a popular education pedagogy and focus on the struggle and principled leadership of Indigenous, African-descendant and Campesino land defenders, community organizers, and peacebuilders.

Every delegation is a unique and unforgettable experience. Each delegation has an itinerary with scheduled activities, meetings, training, and visits that are specific to the thematic framing and the group's participants. All delegations center the work, testimonies, and requests from local grassroots organisations that are committed to justice.

This delegation will look to explore questions about peace in Colombia: Can peace be maintained without women, Afro-Colombian and Indigenous communities being integrally involved? How do grassroots social movements challenge the corporate model and maintain sovereignty over lands, water, seeds and cultures?

 

Delegates on this trip will explore ways in which Colombian communities are resisting the current military and free trade policies through cultural restoration and leadership of food sovereignty initiatives. This delegation is open and preferable to people who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

What lessons can we learn about investing in humanity, healthcare, education, housing, parks, art, and an ethics and practices of solidarity? And what role can we play to end the Blockade?
