Dear Friends,

I’m pleased to announce that the 2016 Pastors for Peace caravan will arrive in Atlanta on Saturday, July 9. Please join us as this year’s caravan celebrates 27 years of solidarity with the Cuban people.

The traditional potluck and subsequent talk will take place at 7:00p.m. at:

Friends Meeting House
701 W. Howard St. Decatur Ga. 30030
Directions: https://www.google.com/maps/@33.7673,-84.306494,17z

Although some travel and trade restrictions have been eased this year, the U.S. economic embargo against Cuba is still law. The eight caravan travelers will lead a discussion about the important role that U.S. citizens can play in lifting the blockade and the travel ban against Cuba.
The keynote speaker will be Ms. Gladys Abella, a leader of Havana’s Ebenezer Baptist Church. Ms. Abella played a key role in the creation of the The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Memorial Center in Havana.

Please bring a dish to share and make a donation for the caravan’s expenses.

In solidarity,

Bernardo Gomez
Atlanta Network on Cuba
