  • It is the height of hypocrisy for the US government to renew its attack on IFCO on the heels of the historic visit of Pope Francis who plead for the nations of the world to work together on behalf of the human family.
  • This attack by the US government makes no sense in light of the significant moves of both the Obama and Castro administrations to normalize relations.
  • Denounce this threat against IFCO – one of the nation’s oldest faith-based civil rights organizations and the first ecumenical foundation founded by and for people of color.
  • To stop bullying IFCO for helping the people of Cuba and allow us to continue our life-saving humanitarian work
