Stand in Solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution and Learn More about the Afro Venezuelan Struggle this May!


AfroVenezuela: History and Culture Delegation

May 21-30, 2016

Before the Bolivarian Revolution, Afro-Venezuelan people and their history were marginalized and erased from Venezuelan society. Along with International Workers’ rights, May also celebrates Afro-Venezuelan history and is full of commemorative events marking the significant political, cultural and social contributions of the African Diaspora and the specific struggles of Afro-descendants in Venezuela. Delegates will meet with grassroots Afro-Venezuelan organizers, cultural leaders and participate in local events while also learning about state institutions that work toward challenging institutional racism. Learn how Afro-Venezuelans have secured significant rights with the Bolivarian Revolution and continue to build an anti-racist Venezuelan society today.

Cost: This delegation fee covers all set-up preparation, 2 meals per day, housing accommodations, interpreters, transportation within the country and a trained delegation coordinator. The feel also covers extensive reading and activist tools before and after the delegation. $1950 excluding international airfare. Deadline: Application with a non-refundable deposit of $150 is due by March 14, 2016. Limited space available—Apply early!
