Dear Friend of Global Exchange,
This is it! The opportunity we have all been waiting for!
The House Committee on Foreign Affairs (HCFA) will vote on HR 4645 on Wednesday, September 29, at noon. This means that they will be considering whether to lift the travel ban on Cuba . . . or not.
Global Exchange has provided you with all the information you need to understand HR 4645 and what you can do to make it pass!
We can win this, just like we won in the House Committee on Agriculture, with your help! . . . but we do need YOU, again! TAKE ACTION TODAY.
We've asked, for months now, for you to contact your congressperson about HR 4645. Every time we've asked you've delivered, above our highest expectations.
At each step of this drawn-out process -- to end this ridiculous travel ban -- your persistence with Congress has proven fruitful. We've gotten hearings, we've broadened our spectrum of support, we've racked-up co-sponsors, and we passed HR 4645 through the Agriculture Committee. Now we come to you again, expressing the same sense of urgency, and asking you help us take the next BIG step on the path to end the travel ban.
If your member of Congress serves on the Foreign Affairs Committee, your voice is supremely important. Find out if your member is part of this committee.
Send another letter, make another phone call. Please. Send another e-mail message. It works. It has gotten us this far.
We can't make guarantees about this effort, but we can assure you that, day-in and day-out, dedicated progressive Cuba workers, who are part of our network, are on Capitol Hill doing everything they can to end the travel ban on Cuba. Partner with us, and we can win this.
So please click the link and send an email. It only takes a second, but that second can move mountains.
Kirsten Moller, Malia Everette, Leslie Balog, Drea Hightower, and Pam Montanaro
We wish to thank our colleagues in Washington, DC at the Latin America Working Group (LAWG) who have done so much this year, and during the last decade, to keep us informed about upcoming legislation impacting U.S. Cuba Policy!
