Join us at Zao MKE Church, 2319 E Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee, WI, to send off the 32nd Friendshipment Caravan — Reception at 6:30; Program begins at 7:00
Speakers will include Cheryl LaBash, a representative of the Pastors For Peace Caravan to Cuba (caravans will travel from Milwaukee and other cities) to talk about the needs this program answers, and the solidarity it demonstrates with our neighbors in Cuba. We look forward to showing Milwaukee’s enthusiastic support with our donations for this historic project and our attendance at this important event.
For those outside of Wisconsin or unable to attend in person, the event will also stream live from the church’s facebook and youtube pages:

The Friendshipment Send-Off and Fundraising Event will feature IFCO/Pastors for Peace speaker Cheryl LaBash. Cheryl is Co-Chair of the National Network on Cuba. She’ll speak about the importance of the Friendshipment Caravan, and receive donations for Pastors For Peace to buy and bring needed medicines to Cuba.
Cheryl’s first trip to Cuba was in 1985 as a member of the executive board of her AFSCME Local at the City of Detroit Health Dept. Then as today, the disproportionately high infant mortality in that majority African-American city fueled her activism with Doctors4Detroit supporting Cuba’s medical scholarship program and opportunities for graduates.
Cheryl also works in Washington, D.C. on national mobilization and legislative advocacy to end the U.S. economic, financial and commercial blockade of Cuba, and writes on current Cuba-related developments.
