Bust the Cuba Blockade Advocacy Campaign

 

We’ll be joining the (National Network on Cuba’s (NNOC) Bust the Blockade Advocacy Campaign. This will be a multipronged campaign to lobby Congress and the White House to remove Cuba from the State Sponsors of Terrorism List (SSOT) and more generally to lift the U.S. government’s 62 year blockade of Cuba. The campaign will include:
* Phone banking to Congress and the White House
* Constituent letter writing
* Politician letter writing (letters from governors and Congress members)
* Meetings with members of Congress
* Rallies, rallies, rallies!

All Year: Campaign to Get Cuba off the State Sponsor of Terrorism List.

Along with our sister Cuba solidarity organizations around the country, a primary focus of our work this year included a multi-faceted campaign to get Cuba off the U.S. Government's State Sponsor of Terrorism List. Cuba is certainly not a state sponsor of terrorism, but the placing of Cuba on the list causes significant harm to Cuba both diplomatically and economically. We shared information and lobbied intensively to get Cuba removed from the list. The Biden Administration decided to keep Cuba on the terror list, but we’ll continue to fight to get Cuba removed. It’s absurd for Cuba to be on the Terror list!

No Terrorism
