Organize for the
26th Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba!
The Blockade and Travel Ban Have Not Been Lifted yet. However this year the 114th Congress has introduced the Freedom to Trade with Cuba Act of 2015 in the Senate and the Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act of 2015 in the House and Senate. We are very close to finally accomplishing what our Cuban brothers and sisters have been asking us to work towards all of these years! Making this summer’s caravan one of the most important ever!
The 26th Caravan Begins June 29!
We’ll be stopping in cities all across the US and Canada to challenge the blockade but more importantly to show US elected officials that Cuba has many allies in the US — and abroad — that want to see normalized relations with our neighbors.
Celebrating Community Organizing!
This year our theme is community organizing and who better to teach us about effective community organizing than our Cuban friends? During this caravan we will be meeting with people running senior centers and children’s programs, operating cooperatives, and pastoring Cuban churches who despite the limitations created by the blockade, have still been able to serve their community.
We are ready to organize! Here is how you can participate:
- Join the 26th Caravan to Cuba. Applications are ready!
- Host the caravan in your community.
- Sponsor a vehicle.
- Send material aid to Cuba.
All of the resources you need to organize a caravan event or a pre-caravan event, send aid or a vehicle to Cuba, or promote IFCO/Pastors for Peace and the ELAM Scholarship program can be found on the Caravan Resource page under the Pastors for Peace tab.
