Support your rights to travel to Cuba - Call the Capitol today

Posted May 01, 2007 by publisher in Cuba Politics.

An email campaign from the Latin American Working Group

The Havana Journal supports the efforts of the LAWG and I have called my Senators Kennedy and Kerry asking them to support the bill. The switchboard phone rang about four times then I was promptly transferred to my Senators’ rep where they listened politely and asked for my zip code. Very simple and both phone calls took a total of maybe three minutes. If you want to travel to Cuba, spend three minutes and make a couple calls. My Congresman Bill Delahunt has already signed on as a supporter.

From LAWG email:

Restore Your Right to Travel to Cuba

It’s just a phone call away… 202-224-3121

Cuba Call-In Days May 1 & 2

How this works:

In the House, call your representative; ask to speak to the foreign policy staff; then ask that the congressperson cosponsor HR 654, the House bill to end the travel ban (voicemail is fine). If your representative has already cosponsored, thank her/him!
