Do not remove the non-profit status of IFCO/Pastors for Peace.

STOP the IRS and SAVE IFCO The IRS plans to revoke our non-profit status. We know that you have always supported our mission in IFCO. You can help us now, please stop what you are doing and sign the petition which sends an email message to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen asking him to end this politically-motivated attack on IFCO. (and also to Pres. Obama and our friends in Congress)  This attack by the U.S. government makes no sense in light of the significant moves of both the Obama and Castro administrations to normalize relations between our two countries. Why IFCO matters? We are one of the nation's oldest faith-based civil rights organizations and the first ecumenical foundation founded by and for people of color. Since 1992 we have also sent 26 humanitarian aid caravans to Cuba, and have done so without a license as a matter of faith and conscience. IFCO has taken on responsibility for recruiting and shepherding young students from the United States to study medicine at the Latin American School of Medicine in Cuba. Stop the IRS from bullying IFCO for helping the people of Cuba and allow us to continue our life-saving humanitarian work.
