With steps forward in diplomatic relations in the previous administration and steps backward in the current one, the relationship between the United States and Cuba continues to be complex and dynamic. Thus, the impact of U.S. policy on Cuba is more important than ever to explore. In the context of decades-long history of U.S.-Cuba relations since the Cuban Revolution, his delegation will explore the impact of the U.S. embargo on the island, and the impact of the recent “normalization” between the two countries  and now U.S. movements under President Trump away from that rapprochement. Delegates will meet with Cubans from all sectors of society to learn about the history of the Cuban model, its achievements and struggles, and Cubans’ visions for the future. Come learn about Cuba from Cubans themselves and understand what U.S. policy changes we can make to promote a just relationship with the Cuban people.

Participants on this delegation will:

  • Hear from Cubans first-hand about the effects of the U.S. embargo on the island
  • Explore Cuban national priorities, such as universal education and healthcare, in historical context
  • Discover how U.S. policies affect the island and its people
