T-minus Two Days till CubaGO

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

CubaGO! is upon us and as promised here is the detailed information you'll need to take action. See a message by Danny Glover asking YOU to call Congress on Wednesday.  

On Wednesday September 30 this is what you'll need to do:

Step one is to find the DC (202) office numbers for your members of Congress. Luckily (maybe unfortunately), we're pros at this and have a tool that will look up your legislators. Click here and enter your zip-code and a list of your legislators, with contact information, will pop up.

Second, Call your congressional representative's DC office and ask to speak with the foreign policy aide. If she/he is unavailable ask to leave a message.

 The Message: Co-Sponsor and support the "Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act", HR 874

The Talking Points:

As a constituent I believe that:

   – All Americans should have the RIGHT to travel to Cuba
   – A MAJORITY of Americans, a majority of Cuban Americans, and even Cuban political dissidents want the travel ban to end
   – Major religious and human rights organizations say ending the travel ban will help the CUBAN PEOPLE
   – After 50 years, it is time to CHANGE our policy toward Cuba – starting with ending the travel ban for all Americans

Next, call each of your senators' offices and ask to speak to the foreign policy aide. 

 The Message: Co-Sponsor and support the "Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act", S 428

The Talking Points:

As a constituent I believe that:

   – All Americans should have the RIGHT to travel to Cuba
   – A MAJORITY of Americans, a majority of Cuban Americans, and even Cuban political dissidents want the travel ban to end
   – Major religious and human rights organizations say ending the travel ban will help the CUBAN PEOPLE
   – After 50 years, it is time to CHANGE our policy toward Cuba – starting with ending the travel ban for all Americans

An E-mail is never as good as a phone call, but is a good quick action in addition to calling that you can take right NOW, here.

Lastly, report back to us so that we can follow up with these offices. Tell us which offices you called and who you spoke with (or left messages for). If you organized a large group of constituents, be sure to mention approximately how many calls in total were made.
Email us any other suggestions or comments you may have: endthetravelban@lawg.org
