On October 19, 1960, the U.S. placed a trade embargo on Cuba. Today, the 55-year-old embargo is an archaic relic of Cold War policy that hurts Americans and Cubans alike.

It’s time to get the facts straight.

 

97% OF CUBANS SAID NORMALIZING RELATIONS WOULD BE GOOD FOR THEIR COUNTRY.

81% OF U.S. VOTERS SUPPORT EXPANDING TRAVEL TO CUBA.

2015 marked the first time in 20 years that Americans viewed Cuba in a favorable light. 

 

Support for ending the travel ban and trade embargo has bipartisan support.

58 percent of Americans favor reestablishing diplomatic relations (while just 24% oppose).

81 percent of Americans support allowing all Americans to travel to Cuba, including large majorities of Republicans (71%), Democrats (90%) and Independents (80%).
