S. 428, "Travel for All," is the Senate companion to H.R. 874 introduced two weeks ago by Representatives Delahunt (D-MA) and Flake (R-AZ). The Senate bill, introduced by Senator Dorgan (D-ND) with Senators Enzi (R-WY), Lugar (R-IN), and Dodd (D-CT), calls for the lifting of travel restrictions so ALL Americans can travel freely to Cuba.
S. 428, like H.R. 874, is an important step toward a changed Cuba policy; and we need your help to make this a reality. Contact your senators and ask them to co-sponsor S. 428.
To find your senators' contact information, you can call the Senate switchboard at 202.224.3121; or you can look it up here.
Here is the message:
Please co-sponsor S. 428, "To allow travel between the United States and Cuba."
This bill introduced by Senators Dorgan (D-ND), Enzi (R-WY), Lugar (R-IN), and Dodd (D-CT) calls for lifting travel restrictions to Cuba for ALL Americans, restoring our right as citizens of the United States to travel freely, and takes a giant step toward restoring our country's reputation in Latin America and the world.
Thank you for your support in ending this inhumane and out-dated travel ban. To co-sponsor S. 428, please contact Wendy Gnehm in Senator Enzi's office or Brian Moran in Senator Dorgan's office.
Support "travel for all" rather than "travel for none" or even "travel for some."
