Big news! We now have legislation in the House of Representatives calling for an end to the travel ban on Cuba for all Americans. “Travel for All” instead of “Travel for None” or even “Travel for Some.” Take action now: ask your representative to co-sponsor H.R. 874. The purpose of H.R. 874 is “To allow travel between the United States and Cuba” – but the most important thing to remember about it is that it will allow travel for all Americans, no exclusions. It was introduced by Representatives Bill Delahunt (D-MA) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), along with a short list of original co-sponsors. See the list of co-sponsors below.
Capitol Switchboard number: (202) 224-3121 or find your representative’s number on their website.
The message: Please co-sponsor H.R. 874, the Delahunt-Flake bill “To allow travel between the United States and Cuba.”
This bill introduced by Rep. Delahunt (D-MA) and Rep. Flake (R-AZ) 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.
