Lobby for Peace!

Vote NO on H.R. 314 in Congress NOW, that would codify Cuba as a “state sponsor of terrorism”. Cuba was put on that list by Trump, and Biden has not removed them. This law, pushed by right-wing Cuban Americans, if passed, would make it impossible for any President to take Cuba off this list, which bars Cuba from international finance, and scares investors, travelers and businesses away from Cuba. It is, right now, causing incredible harm and suffering to the Cuban people.
*We are asking ALL people to LOBBY/CALL/VISIT their House Representative on FRIDAY MAY 26 with this message. STOP THE INJUSTICE AGAINST CUBA! Vote NO on HR 314, and pressure Biden to take Cuba OFF the list of “state sponsors of terrorism.”
