            Celebrate Pastors for Peace 24th Cuba Caravan Friendshipment Send-Off. Throughout the years Caravanistas have taken tons of humanitarian aid to our island neighbors. With each successive effort to challenge the US economic blockade of Cuba, the US government has been compelled to back down, to soften its enforcement of the blockade.

    This year's program will feature the documentary film "Esencias," about the US tour of La Colmenita, the national children’s theater group of Cuba. The film explains through children’s eyes what the Cuban 5 means to them as they perform in Washington DC, New York and the San Francisco Bay Area.

            Bill Hackwell from the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5, organizers of La Colmenita’s tour in 2011, will give an update on the Cuban 5 and changes occurring in Cuba.

             A $5-10 donation is suggested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Wheelchair accessible.
