We have hit the ground running with the Freedom To Travel to Cuba program at Global Exchange in 2013.
2013 is a year of opportunity. With Obama in his second term of presidency, now is the time to pressure him to end the embargo, lift the travel ban, and get Cuba off the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism.
Regarding travel to Cuba, join us in asking President Obama to use his authority to grant general licenses right now for all categories of purposeful travel to Cuba, including People-To-People travel. This would be a huge step in eliminating bureaucratic barriers to purposeful travel to Cuba and allow more U.S. Americans to have meaningful exchange with Cubans.
Right now is also an opportunity to amplify the conversation about the freedom to travel to Cuba as the media focuses on superstars Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s recent trip to Cuba. Read our analysis of Jay-Z and other musical artist’ responses to the trip, and our in-depth interview with Cuban rap artist Kokino about his perspective.
Help us encourage Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and others with influence, to join us, the people, in calling upon President Obama to enact these important reforms for more just U.S. foreign policy towards Cuba.
Together, let’s make change in 2013!
