Welcome to ForNorm
Who We Are
The Foundation for the Normalization of U.S./Cuba Relations was established in mid-2006 as a non-profit educational organization pursuant to section 501(c) (3) of the IRS Code. The brainchild of a diverse group of community leaders and activists, its mission is to provide realistic information about the advantages of a civil, respectful, and normal relationship between the United States of America and the Republic of Cuba.
Our mission is to educate policy makers, business leaders, civic leaders and the general public on the history and current state of relations between the United States and Cuba and to find new ways to work together for the common good. We believe that exciting opportunities are available to us that can benefit both of our countries. Economic benefits, mutually satisfying cultural, sporting, and educational exchanges and family reunification are all possible by focusing on reality instead of following an obsolete and failed Cold War approach based on misconceptions and political dogmas.
We are committed to providing credible information on the policies of both countries – and the missed opportunities and waste of taxpayer money that has typified our confrontational approach. We encourage a new debate on the potential for normalizing relations while fully respecting each country’s sovereignty. We challenge the leadership and people of both countries to forge a relationship of mutual support. Recent developments provide an opening to renew the traditional friendship and mutual admiration between the Cuban and American people.
We are Non-Political
We believe that a truly intelligent review of the relations between the United States and Cuba can only be achieved when people of all persuasions – in both countries – participate in rational, non-ideological discussions and review the facts. As such, our education is directed fairly and consistently to all people regardless of their political affiliations. We strive to be a reality-based organization.
