About the Resolutions Task Force

The Resolutions Task Force does the detailed work of producing draft resolutions, letters and other resource materials to get resolutions passed in councils, labor bodies and anywhere else we can. You can see the full list below.

New members are always welcome!
In addition – if you are thinking of trying to get a resolution passed where you are – we are always here to offer advice and support. Join us once, or occasionally, or make contact by email – [email protected]. See you soon!

Check Out These Adopted Resolutions!

The following U.S. City Councils, County Boards, State Legislatures, School Boards, Labor Councils, Unions, Workers Organizations, and other organizations have passed 96 resolutions which have addressed:

-Supporting ending the U.S. embargo/blockade on Cuba, and 
-Saving Lives through scientific collaboration with Cuba regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic, and
-Urging that Cuba be removed from the U.S. List of State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT)

Some levels of these governmental units or labor unions have passed more than one resolution regarding Ending the Embargo, Saving Lives, and/or Removing Cuba from SSOT list. This is indicated next to the name of each with the name(s) of one or more resolutions. Units of government are now also sending letters individually signed by elected officials to the President and Congressional delegations.

These units of government and labor organizations together represent over 54 million people as part of their populations.
