President Obama has the power to remove all restrictions on travel to Cuba for non-tourist purposes.
Significant reform was approved by the Administration during the summer, at least to the level of people to people travel permitted during the Clinton Administration.
However, the announcement was postponed until after the mid-term election at the behest of White House political staff. They yielded to pressure from a well-funded special interest group of five Cuban Americans and their allies in Congress.
You can contribute to the debate within the Administration by sending this message, with the option of modification based on your personal experience and views.
The White House must recognize that disappointment will turn to anger if it does not finally allow non-tourist travel.
After you send your letter to the President, please use the means provided to bring friends and colleagues into this critical effort as quickly as possible.
