Restoration of Obama's Cuba Policy by the Biden-Harris Administration

Restoration of Obama's Cuba Policy by the Biden-Harris Administration

We ask you to confirm during the first months of the Biden-Harris Administration your plan to restore President Obama's opening with Cuba including general licenses for all travel; cultural, sports and educational exchanges; flights to regions and cruises; unrestricted remittances and personal transfers; agricultural sales; business agreements; and renewal of full embassy and consular services.

Why is this important?

During their campaign, President Biden and Vice President Harris pledged to "promptly reverse the failed Trump policies that have inflicted harm on the Cuban people".

Substantial majorities of Americans support repairing the Trump Administration's symbolic and substantive damage to our freedom as well as to our national political and economic interest.

Sadly the Biden-Harris Administration has allowed the shadow of Trump to dominate US policy on Cuba three months after replacing him.

It is unprincipled to continue to deny Cuban Americans the ability to provide desperately needed remittances to their families and to ignore the Constitutional right of all Americans to travel.

Prompt action is essential so independent visitors and specialized travel agencies can create trips that renew support for Cuba's private sector by the summer of 2021.

Cruise lines, tour operators, airlines, universities, cultural exchanges, agricultural producers and businesses require early policy change in order to resume jobs generating engagement in the 2021-2022 season.

Reasons for signing

  • I have a dream...
  • I signed because I think the embargo is ridiculous, this is the year 2021, not 1964. Gov. have changed. The only ones being hurt are the Cuban people, it's a human rights issue. I have friends and family that cannot find food during this pandemic. This should not happen!!
  • We all (united States of America and Cuba) can learn a great deal from each other
