This is an exciting time to be active in our country's decision making process. There are certainly no shortage of opportunities to get involved in responding to our new President's call to "…pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.
We need your support to turn these opportunities for remaking America's Cuba policy into real change. As you probably know, to end the travel ban on Cuba, Congress must act. This is something they were hesitant to do under the veto threats of the Bush Administration. Now, change has come to Washington, DC, and our allies in Congress are ready to act. Legislation calling for an end to the travel ban for ALL Americans will pass in Congress if we demand it. If a new member of Congress was elected in your district, we are reaching out to you in particular.
We need the new members of Congress to support an end to the travel ban, and you can help make that happen!
Call or e-mail your new representative today: 202-224-2131 or www.house.gov. Tell them that you want U.S. policy toward Cuba to change. Tell them that ALL Americans have the right to travel to Cuba. Tell them that you are counting on their vote. Ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 874, "To Allow Travel Between the United States and Cuba."
