From 30 April to 7 May 2016, the International Justice Camp, a joint initiative of the Episcopal Church of Cuba, the diocese of Niagara and the Anglican Church of Canada, The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund and the Anglican Foundation of Canada took place at the Roman Catholic Retreat Centre in Matanzas, Cuba. The author, a member of St. Margaret's Church in Winnipeg, was one of 25 Canadian and 25 Cuban participants in the camp. "While others dispersed to locations around Cuba to delve into topics like food security and social engagement, I boarded a bus to the capital city of Havana as part of a group focused on economic justice".
