Menendez on Birth Day of José Martí

Washington DC - U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-NJ)issued the following statement commemorating the life of Cuban poet and freedom fighter José Martí.

"I join Cuban-Americans in New Jersey and across our nation on this special day, as we celebrate the life and legacy of José Martí - father of Cuba's independence from Spain. Considered one of Cuba's most prominent political leaders, Martí dedicated his entire life to fighting for the dream of equality, justice, and freedom for Cubans of all races and economic backgrounds. His life and legacy continues to serve as a great source of inspiration for those working to achieve our shared goal of restoring democracy and liberty in Cuba."
