UPCOMING DELEGATIONS

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.

HEALING OUR LAND, HEALING OURSELVES

December 8-17, 2023

Application Deadline:
September 20th, 2023

Frontline workers, nurses, social workers, educators, first-responders -- those who support healing and hold trauma -- will exchange with Cuban organizers, healers, and nature lovers. We will share strategies for environmental justice, community and political organizing, education, and nurturing. As peace-makers we will explore how capitalism, imperialism, and environmental racism challenge work for justice across the Americas and focus on the effects of the U.S. blockade as the primary obstacle to peace.

AGROECOLOGY AND COOPERATION

December 1-10, 2023

Learn firsthand the African diaspora’s experience in Cuba, a country with a political system built around human needs above profit. How do Cubans, a Black-majority country, approach environmental protection, religious syncretism, housing rights, and healthcare? What is the role of historic and contemporary abolitionist practices in their quest to eradicate racism? What challenges remain to build an equitable society, especially under the yoke of 60 years of the US Blockade? What do these lessons mean for the struggle for black liberation in the U.S.?

PAN-AFRICANISM IN CUBA TODAY: HISTORY, OPPORTUNITIES, AND CHALLENGES

February, 2024

From the U.S. South to Cuba we will travel to learn how this Caribbean island nation has built a new society based on a life with dignity. Cuba has fought against the imposition of a brutal Spanish colonial plantation economy and a racial capitalist U.S. neo-colony. Following the triumph of the Revolution, the people have spent over six decades building a socialist society. Today, in Cuba healthcare, education, food, housing, culture, unions, sports, and protagonism are all rights shared by the majority. Meet with the people who continue this transformational process, despite the U.S. Blockade and military occupation of Guantanamo Bay. Learn about historic Black and Indigenous resistance, agroecology, and cooperative organizing.

Application Deadline:
