The current US policy requires that if we wish to visit Cuba we must have an invitation in writing from a Cuban organization. We have received this invitation for our November. 2018 trip. The Building Relations with Cuban Labor movement has four achievable goals. First, is to bring awareness to the economic and social situation in Cuba. Second, is to eliminate the economic embargo that the United States government has imposed upon Cuba. Third, is to close the US military base in Guantanamo Bay and return the land to Cuba. Fourth, is to protect the right of US and Cuban citizens to travel to and from Cuba the same as the other Caribbean countries.
Steps to Achievement of Purpose
This is a detailed list laying out specific steps when accomplished will complete our purpose.

- Use the California based US Representatives and Senators to start a conversation in Congress about the four goals listed above.
