U.S. - Cuba Engagement: What's in it for Louisiana?

Last year, the United States (U.S.) and Cuba began restoring diplomatic ties and relaxing some trade and travel restrictions. It was a significant thaw in a relationship that has been frosty for more than 55 years. However, it is still a long way from a full-scale lifting of the U.S's economic embargo on the island nation. 

This past year, Engage Cuba has been working to build support for normalizing relations with Cuba both in D.C and in important states such as Louisiana . Engage Cuba representatives will be joined by Louisiana voices for a conversation about the implications of new Cuba Policy at the Old Governor's Mansion in Baton Rouge on February 25th at 12:00 pm.
