The Seattle-Cuba Friendship Committee has been working with the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO) for 23 years. This important New-York based solidarity group has been the organizer of the annual Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravans to Cuba that we have participated in since 1991.
For more than two years, IFCO, a faith-based, social justice agency, has been the victim of political persecution and an aggressive harassment campaign by the Internal Revenue Service. Now the IRS is attempting to strip IFCO of their tax-exempt, non-profit organization status: 501(c)(3). Please visit the IFCO website and read about the IRS attack, and help them fight the campaign by contacting our Congressional Representative Jim McDermott and also by making a direct, secure financial contribution to IFCO for their legal expenses:
