Engage Cuba Statement on the death of Fidel Castro

WASHINGTON, D.C. - James Williams, President of Engage Cuba, a national coalition of private companies, organizations and local leaders dedicated to dismantling the embargo, released the following statement on the death of Fidel Castro: 

"For over 55 years, Fidel Castro altered the course of the history of Cuba and of U.S.-Cuba relations. With his passing, our relationship will no longer be defined by one man, but by the millions of Cubans and Americans whose lives will be improved by ending the embargo.  

"After nearly six decades, it's time for Congress to move forward and continue on the progress we have made over the past two years to build a brighter future for both of our countries."
