Join Witness for Peace at encuentro 5, Sunday, December 2, 6:00-8:30 for a community dinner, screening of Tierralismo (2014) about the 26 acre farming co-op on the outskirts of Havana, and dialogue with urban farmers of color from Boston about their upcoming delegation to Cuba in December.
This fundraiser and send-off event for the delegation, with a $10 suggested donation at the door for food and the screening, will help to cover participants’ delegation fees for meals, lodging, transportation, interpretation and guide services, program and entrance costs, direct support to Cuban farmers, popular educators and organizers on the ground, and extensive reading and activist tools for delegates. More on the trip at its Facebook site.
See, too, the flyer about the WFP March 2019 Arts, Culture and U.S.-Cuba Relations Delegation trip here.
