This year marks the 25th Pastors for Peace Friendship Caravan to Cuba, a project of the Inter-religious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO). At its core, this ongoing effort challenging the U. S. blockade of Cuba seeks to bring an end to the senseless blockade , the travel ban, and the many hardships experienced by Cuban people as a result of the blockade.
POTLUCK In accordance with tradition, there will be a communal meal (potluck) commencing @ 5:30 p.m. So everybody, bring a dish to share, along with all of the utensils, etc. needed to serve your dish. Please have potluck food at the Avery Research Center by at least by 4:30 pm on Monday, July 14, 2014. Contact Mr. Curtis J. Franks at firstname.lastname@example.org or 843.953.7610, and let him know what your dish / food contribution is going to be.
CALL TO ACTION
In the ‘Spirit of Freedom Summer,’ we acknowledge and recognize the Cuban government for awarding scholarships to attend medical school to thousands of students from Africa, Asia, and the Americans (including South Carolinians). Reciprocity has its place, so let’s get busy and support the Caravanistas & other initiatives to improve the quality of life of as many people as we can.
Monetary contributions toward the meal, and certainly to the organization, are strongly encouraged. Checks should be made out to the organization: IFCO.
