Join us earlier Sunday morning at 10am when we welcome back the Cuba Friendshipment caravan to Third Unitarian Church!

July 8: Pastors for Peace Reprentative, Aaron Mercredi, will speak. This year is the 20th anniversary of the first Pastors for Peace caravan to Cuba. In July, the caravan will travel in school buses, trucks and cars along 13 different routes, visiting nearly 130 US and Canadian cities. Along the way, the caravan will educate people about the cruel blockade of Cuba while collecting constructions supplies and tools, medical supplies and equipment, educational and cultural supplies, to be donated to the people of Cuba. This is your chance to find out about the caravan when it passes through Chicago on its way to the border in McAllen, Texas.

From Texas the caravan will travel to Cuba via Mexico without asking for or accepting a US government license, as a disciplined act of civil disobedience against the blockade and travel ban, and as ambassadors for a “people-to-people” foreign policy based on mutual respect. For further information on the caravan, please visit http://www.pastorsforpeace.org.
