Mayors conference adopts resolution on ending embargo

The U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) has adopted a resolution calling on Congress to end the embargo against Cuba, citing their leaders’ recent trip to Cuba, organized by the Center for Democracy in the Americas (CDA), in the case that the organization made for endorsing its official pro-normalization policy.

The action came during the recently concluded 84th annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors which took place in Indianapolis, Indiana.

CDA executive director Sarah Stephens worked with Tom Cochran, CEO and executive director of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, in organizing a fact-finding delegation to Cuba for USCM officers from May 25-29.
