Tell Congress: End the Ban on Travel to Cuba

For nearly five decades, Americans have been banned from traveling to Cuba. But movement is afoot in Congress to finally overturn this ban. And it has the support of mainstream human rights groups, Cuban dissidents, bipartisan political leaders, and a majority of the American public.

A bill in the U.S. House of Representatives -- H.R. 4645, The Travel Restriction Reform and Export Enhancement Act -- has been introduced by Reps. Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Jerry Moran (R-KS), along with 31 of their colleagues. It calls for Congress to restore U.S. citizens' right to travel to Cuba, as well as facilitate U.S. agricultural sales to Cuba.

The U.S. and Cuba have had a rocky relationship for decades. But enforcing travel bans is not an effective way to engage the country. The travel ban, after all, has been in place for almost five decades, with little progress to show for it. The time to overturn it is now.

Send your members of Congress a message that H.R. 4645 deserves to pass, and that the travel on ban on Cuba needs to end.
