Want to Travel to Cuba?

If you want to travel to Cuba, today is the day to make your voice heard.

The Latin American Working Group - one of the nation's longest standing coalitions dedicated to foreign policy - has organized a CubaGO! campaign for today, September 30.

Call your representitive and let them know that you support the Freedom to Travel to Cuba legislation currently in committee.

People supportive of allowing travel to Cuba for all US citizens are asked to call their representitive's office and deliver the following message:

Co-Sponsor and support the “Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act” HR 874.

As a constituent I believe that:

  • All Americans should have the RIGHT to travel to Cuba
  • A MAJORITY of Americans, a majority of Cuban Americans, and Cuban political dissidents want the travel ban to end
  • Major religious and human rights groups say ending the travel ban will help the Cuban people
  • After 50 years, it is time to CHANGE our policy toward Cuba – starting with ending the travel ban for all Americans
Key West is the closest point in the United States to Cuba - a mere 90 miles.

Key West's representitive in Congress is Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Unfortunately she continues to support the Cuba travel ban.

If you want to see an end to the travel ban, call her offices at the following:

Washington, DC Office
Telephone: 202-225-3931

Miami, Florida Office
Telephone: 305-668-2285
Next, call your senators. You can reach Florida's senators at:

Nelson, Bill - (D - FL)
(202) 224-5274


LeMieux, George S. - (R - FL)
(202) 224-3041
And help spread the word. Tell your friends, family, and associates about today's CubaGO! campaign.
