The Pastors for Peace Cuba Caravan is coming to San Jose! Join us for an evening of food, live Cuban music, and a discussion about Cuba. Featuring speaker Alicia Jrapko and renowned Chilean musician Rafael Manriquez.

By traveling to Cuba with humanitarian aid without a U.S. government license, Pastors for Peace challenges the U.S. economic blockade against Cuba.

The featured speaker is Alicia Jrapko. Alicia was born and raised in Argentina. In 1976, during the repressive military dictatorship, she was forced to leave her homeland and relocate in the San Francisco Bay Area. Alicia first traveled to Cuba in 1994 with IFCO/Pastors for Peace. Following her return, she became active in the San Francisco Bay Area Friendshipment Committee, a nonprofit organization which supports IFCO/Pastors for Peace projects in Cuba, Chiapas, Mexico and Central America. She was also instrumental in forming the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five imprisoned in the United States.

Please consider bringing an item for the potluck dinner.

This event is a fundraiser for the Cuba Caravan. Donations requested.
