​The July 26th Coalition of Boston is hosting an event for IFCO-Pastors 
for Peace on *Friday, June 29,  7 PM. *

The gathering is held in honor of Pastors for Peace​, based in New York 
City, that has long worked throughout the country and the world to end 
the U.S. economic blockade of Cuba. Every ​summer​since 1992, the 
Pastors for Peace Friendshipment caravans have gone to Cuba. When they 
go, they are making a statement in purposeful defiance of U.S. laws as a 
matter of civil disobedience.

The speaker ​on this route ​will be​ Cheryl LaBash, a journalist who 
writes about Cuba and who is one of the chairpersons of the National 
Network on Cuba. Her first trip to Cuba was in 1985 as a member of the 
executive board of her AFSCME Local in the city of Detroit.

She will​introduce​​thenew and exciting film, */Dare to Dream: Cuba's 
Latin American Medical School./*//That training facility known as ELAM, 
provides medical education at no charge and graduates over 1000 new 
doctors every year, including from the United States.  Cheryl works in 
Michigan with Doctors 4 Detroit supporting the ELAM scholarship program, 
Detroit area students and graduates. A recent graduate of ELAM, now 
doing her residency in Boston, has been invited.
