BRIDGE BUILDER FOR PEACE & JUSTICE
Reception Honoring Congressman Mike Doyle
Monday, November 21, 2016 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Atria’s at PNC Park
The Pittsburgh-Matanzas Sister Cities Partnership has for many years been leading the effort to have our Congress repeal the travel ban and embargo against the people and government of Cuba. Congressman Mike Doyle (14 CD) has been an outspoken advocate in the halls of Congress supporting the effort to normalize relations with a nation just 90 miles off our shore. We were proud that at our request he led a large delegation to Cuba this past November to educate a diverse delegation on these issues and to speak and learn from everyday folks and government leaders. Perceptions to the contrary and despite some policy improvements through Executive Order only Congress can act to permanently repeal our immoral and counter productive policy against the people and government of Cuba.
Congressman Mike Doyle is especially deserving of our BRIDGE BUILDER FOR PEACE & JUSTICE award and we ask that you please join us to convey our thanks and support our on-going efforts.
