A Call to demand Cuba be removed from the official list of State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT)
HOURS TO CALL & SCRIPT
The White House Call-In Line — 202-456-1111 — is open for comment only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 11 am to 3 pm, EST. So this is the time to call. An alternate number is the White House Switchboard: 202-456-1414. For some ideas, check out this suggested script.
If you call and cannot get through, you can use the online White House comments: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/ — You can use the same script. Simply change the wording from “I am calling” to “I am writing.”
Important: Please let us know once you have called or used the contact form. This is important so that we can publicize how many calls and contacts were made. Please do it as soon as you have taken action. The link is at the bottom of the script and it is also here.
WHAT MORE YOU CAN DO
- You can read up on the list of so-called State Sponsors of Terrorism here.
- Contact your Representative & Senators: Enlist them in the days’ push on President Biden to act to remove Cuba from the SSOT. Let them know that you are making the call and ask them to act as well. You can do so automatically through EveryAction – Here
AND IF YOU’RE INVOLVED WITH A GROUP
- Please disseminate the Campaign Toolkit widely to all members of your groups and to lists and people beyond your own lists.
- Here’s a template for a Press Release. You can make a copy and then edit it to your organization’s style and needs.
The idea came out of a meeting July26.org participated in with Congressman Jim McGovern earlier this month [February]. At a follow-up national policy meeting the dates of Wednesday and Thursday, March 15 & 16 were selected, days of the week that the White House Switchboard accepts calls from 11am to 3pm EST. Organizational sign-ons are currently underway.
