SIGN THIS PETITION TO PRESIDENT OBAMA:
We urge him to:
Open up a high level dialogue between the United States and Cuba to address a wide range of issues, including the issue of Alan Gross and the Cuban Five.
Allow all US citizens the freedom to travel to Cuba.
Remove Cuba from the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism, an unnecessary irritant in an already tense relationship which undermines the credibility of the list itself and harms our relations with the rest of the Western Hemisphere.
