Tuesday, March 2 Capitol Calling Party: Peace with Cuba

On Tuesday, March 2, Medea Benjamin, Marcy Winograd, and Hanieh Jodat-Barnes will be joined by two special guests: Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), who is urging Biden to normalize U.S.-Cuba relations, and Jose Pertierra, a Cuban attorney and political analyst. 

For decades, America has burdened Cuba with a cruel embargo, creating tremendous hardships for the Cuban people. This worsened during the Trump administrations, which applied even more sanctions, and so far, President Biden has done nothing to change course. How can we pressure the administration to take action via executive order? What are members of Congress doing? How can we counter the influence of the right-wing? Find out this Tuesday!

Following our guests’ presentations and Q & A, we will ask our Senators to support the U.S.-Cuba Trade Act of 2021, introduced by Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden (D-OR), to lift the embargo on Cuba.
