July 6, 2022: Milwaukee Cuba Friendshipment Send Off & Fundraising Event

Wednesday, July 6, 2022
6:30 pm Reception | 7:00 Program | Q&A/Discussion to follow

Zao MKE Church
2319 E. Kenwood Blvd. 53211

Welcome guest speaker Cheryl LaBash, Past Friendshipment Caravanista and Co-Chair of the National Network on Cuba. Cheryl will speak about the important 30-year history 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. The disproportionately high infant mortality in that majority African-American city fueled her activism with Doctors4Detroit supporting Cuba’s medical scholarship program & opportunities for U.S. 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.
