Washington DC. June 22 & 23:
On Thursday and Friday, June 22 & 23, we are organizing an Advocacy Day with ACERE and NNOC to lobby against the FORCE Act (HR 314 & S.538), a cruel, unjustifiable bill introduced by extreme-right Republicans which would codify into law Cuba’s “terrorist” designation.
Register below for the Advocacy Day if you’re interested in meeting with your Representative, and we’ll send you instructions on how to set up a meeting! (You can also meet with your local Congressional office if you can’t come to DC. - register it as a local activity!)
Washington DC. June 25:
On June 25, join CODEPINK, NNOC and many more for a protest at the White House on June 25 to demand Biden take Cuba off the List of “State Sponsors of Terrorism”! End US Economic Terror Toward Cuba! End US Imperialism and Global Terror!!.
Are you in NYC? Our friends at The People's Forum are organizing a bus from NYC to DC on June 25 to participate in our protests. Get your bus ticket here!
Los Angeles. June 25:
Join CODEPINK in solidarity as we urge Council members to take the suffering caused by the terrorist designation and U.S. blockade against the people of Cuba seriously, by putting the proposed resolution on the Council agenda.
Online June 20:
On June 20, we will be hosting a training session with ACERE to provide some guidance and tips for Advocacy Day. We will share tools and a packet you can use when meeting with your representative and answer any questions you might have.

Conservative Cuban-Americans are trying to pass a law that would codify Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism and prevent any president from removing it from the State Sponsors of Terrorist List. Tell your Representative they should vote NO on H.R. 314 and the Senate version S.538.
A crucial policy of the Trump administration remains, and that is Cuba’s presence on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list. It is critical to Cuba’s ability to pursue economic, trade and humanitarian activities that it be removed immediately from the list - a power well within Biden’s authority. Please sign our petition to the White House calling for Cuba to be removed from the list.
Other ways to help
We have a chance to send powdered milk to ALL of Cuba’s 22 pediatric hospitals, providing one glass of milk a day to all these children for 3 months!!! Please help us. We call on people of goodwill all over the world, including Cubans living abroad, to show their solidarity with the hospitalized children of Cuba. We can’t let sanctions and hatred prevail; we must build bridges of love.
