By traveling to Cuba with humanitarian aid without a U.S. government license, Pastors for Peace challenges the U.S. economic blockade against Cuba as well as the blockade on the minds of the American People about the achievements of the Cuban people and the Cuban Revolution.  This is the 22nd annual caravan.  Multiples buses leave the northern US and make their way to Mexico. 

Visit with people taking part in the caravan and celebrate the legacy of Pastors for Peace founder, the Rev. Lucius Walker, with music, food, speakers, discussion and literature. 

Local sponsors include AFSC, RIMC, RI chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.
