In 2013 Jerry Hoffman, Lee and I (but mainly Jerry) penned a letter, on behalf of the delegate group from DEM2013, to Barack Obama imploring the US President to end the economic embargo of Cuba.
With the recent meeting between Obama and Raul Castro and the warming of diplomatic relations between the US and Cuba perhaps Barack is listening to our delegates… perhaps.
Diplomacy is one thing, hard economic realities are another and it’s the continuing embargo that makes life difficult on a daily basis for our Cuban friends and colleagues.
Should we appeal as a group to the US Congress this time?
At the 2013 conference we had a fantastic presentation on the effects of the embargo. Check out the video and audio here.
