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 days 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-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris pledged to "promptly reverse the failed Trump policies that have inflicted harm on the Cuban people".

We agree with Robert Malley, the President of the International Crisis Group, writing in the New York Times, that to "restore President Barack Obama’s Cuba policy" is beneficial "low hanging fruit", appropriate for the beginning of the Biden-Harris Administration.

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 .

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

Organizer: Fund for Reconciliation and Development, US/Cuba People to People Partnership
Cosponsors: Center for Cuban Culture + Economy; Gallatin Valley Friends of Cuba, Montana; US Women and Cuba Collaboration
