What is Pastors for Peace?

  • A faith-based organization that sends a caravan of school buses, trucks, and cars across the USA, stopping in communities along the way, to educate communities about the blockade of Cuba, and to gather humanitarian supplies to deliver to Cuba.
  • From 1992 to 2006, Pastors for Peace has delivered seventeen “Friendshipments” to Cuba; some encountered resistance from U.S. officials, but arrived safely in Cuba after these officials backed down.
  • Speaking truth to power and standing firm in the face of injustice are central to the work of Pastors for Peace.

The US embargo of Cuba causes shortages of food, medicine, and other important supplies for eleven million people. The embargo is an immoral policy that uses hunger and disease as political weapons.

Dr. Bill Sales, a veteran of the Civil Rights and Student Power Movements, will be speaking on behalf of Pastors for Peace. Speakers representing co-sponsoring organizations Raleigh FIST and Black Workers for Justice will round out the evening.
