CODEPINK CONGRESS Action Alert: Peace with Cuba

Tell your senators to support peace with Cuba!



The United States has imposed an embargo on Cuba for over five decades. It is long past time for this harmful and unjustified embargo to be repealed, and for the US to declare peace with Cuba! 

Senator Ron Wyden recently introduced the US-Cuba Trade Act of 2021 with the goal of finally lifting the embargo on Cuba. Urge your senators to support this important legislation!

My name is [First and Last Name] and I am a constituent from [City, State, Zip Code]. I am calling to urge Senator [Last Name] to co-sponsor S. 249, the U.S.-Cuba Trade Act of 2021, introduced by Senator Ron Wyden.

Our nation’s embargo on Cuba is a relic from the 1960s that has only brought pain and hardship to the island and to Cubans in the United States. This outdated policy of isolation must be repealed immediately.

Please co-sponsor and vote for S.249.

Thank you.

We need to forge a new relationship with our island neighbor, one of mutual respect and increased engagement. This means taking swift action to restore trade with and travel to Cuba to help the island nation flourish, especially as it tackles its current economic and humanitarian crisis, worsened by the pandemic.

Our neighbors in the Caribbean need our help, and co-sponsoring S.249, the U.S.-Cuba Trade Act, takes us in the right direction.

Thank you for your attention to this issue.

Dear President Biden, 

Please sign an Executive Order to lift the sanctions and trade embargo against Cuba and normalize US-Cuba relations. This is particularly urgent during a global pandemic, when we need to work together more than ever. 

You can normalize US-Cuban relations on your own. You do not need congressional approval.
