with Gail Walker, Co-Director of IFCO/Pastors for Peace

Gail Walker is also an award-winning radio producer and an on-air host and journalist. With over 15 years of involvement with Pastors for Peace, including as Communications Director, she has staffed more than 15 caravans of humanitarian aid to Cuba and Central America and worked extensively with marginalized communities.

For many years, Pastors for Peace, founded by the Rev. Lucius Walker, has consistently stood against the U.S. embargo of Cuba and has organized yearly caravans to Cuba to deliver critical supplies. Ms. Walker will discuss present conditions in Cuba and the history of the Friendshipment caravan. Her presentation will set the stage for the next big ROCLA project, the Cuba Caravan coming to Rochester on July 10, 2014.
