In the 27 years that Los Angeles has hosted the Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba organized by Pastors for Peace, Gail Walker had never been able to attend. Walker, who is executive director of Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO), has been with Pastors for Peace ever since her father, the late Baptist Rev. Lucius Walker, founded it in a hospital bed in Nicaragua after taking a bullet from the Contras on the Río Escondido. In that incident, two witnesses to Reagan's war of terror against the Sandinista government were killed and 29 wounded.
