Since the early 1960s, Americans have been barred from trading with, investing in, or traveling to Cuba. With Cuba possibly on the cusp of new political leadership, a growing bipartisan movement in Congress is calling for a reevaluation of the relationship between the United States and Cuba. Please join us for a Capitol Hill Briefing at which Chairman Rangel and Congressman Flake, leading proponents of expanding travel to and economic relations with Cuba, will discuss the need to reassess the U.S. embargo against Cuba.
