Cuaderno de Cuba ha recibido la siguiente carta, que pone en conocimiento de sus lectores:
Thank you all that signed your support on the attached letter and helped to quickly collect signatures as to have it ready for this week’s Senate and House press “roll-outs” of the “Freedom to Travel to Cuba” bills (S. 428) and (H.R. 874). We should be very pleased that within four-days we collected 47 signatures from Cuban American organizations and Cuban American constituents nationally. Imagine if we had two weeks to circulate this letter amongst our family, friends, Google groups, and face book networks. We would have “apoyo tremendo” from Cuban Americans nationally calling for support of ending all travel restrictions on Cuba.
Our hope is to continue to circulate this letter and collect the support of Cuban Americans and Cuban American organizations, while building up our advocacy community of Cuban-Americans nationally to participate in further efforts in support passing (H.R. 874) and (S.428) in this 111th Congress.
However, we will need your help to do this! If you would be willing to sign this letter as a Cuban-American and/or would be willing to pass this on to Cuban Americans/orgs in your own networks, it would be much appreciated. Now is the Time for Change in US policy toward Cuba!
See the letter attached (click here). Please include the following information in the signature:
City, State (for state-level outreach to Senators)
Congressional District (for district-level outreach to Representatives)
Signing Supporters can reply with an email message to me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or you can feel free to forward to me messages- with only the following information requested above. I will be adding all signatures on to the actual letter.
Thank you again for your support.
Un gran abrazo,
