I’m ecstatic about our past six months! Together we’ve proven that much can be accomplished.
In under two months, you and 4,400 other LAWGistas signed a petition delivered to the White House asking for victims’ participation in the Colombian peace process, the creation of a truth commission, and the reshaping of U.S. aid to promote peace, not war.
You and over 9,000 others have made it clear that Cuba shouldn’t be on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism, or as we refer to it, the “Terrorist List.” If you apply the criteria described by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in taking North Korea off the list in 2008—no support for terrorism in the last twenty years – the removal of Cuba from this list is long overdue! Can you believe our government places Cuba in the same category with Iran, Syria, and Sudan?
