Congressional Hearing on Cuba Scheduled - Take Action!
Posted on: Monday, November 16, 2009
This Thursday, November 19th at 10 AM, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs will hold a public hearing on travel to Cuba: “Is it Time to Lift the Ban on Travel to Cuba?” (Room 2172 of the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C.)
From the Latin American Working Group:
The hearing is a major moment in the national effort to end the ban on travel to Cuba. It's our time to open debate to a public airing in Washington and hear what our representatives have to say. The hearing will undoubtedly bring the momentum for the freedom to travel to a new level. Already, support has been growing throughout the country -- in the Cuban-American community, in the ag and business communities, in churches and community groups, in colleges and universities, among sports and cultural organizations. Our diversity is our strength, and we need to continue rallying together to push the "Freedom to Travel Act" to the finish line.
If you're near Washington DC, come show your support. The room will fill up fast so come early (7AM ?) to get a seat in the hearing room.
