Support our church partners in Cuba! Urge steps toward normalization of US-Cuba relations!


 

Last Fall, Stated Clerk, Rev. Gradye Parsons, joined twenty-one U.S. religious leaders in a letter to President Barack Obama urging “concrete action to pursue a path toward improved relations with Cuba.”  The letter backs a similar appeal from Cuban religious leaders sent to the President last May.
