Our purpose is to make a more inclusive society, enhancing the civil rights of each citizen. Fighting discrimination of any kind, while forging a more prosperous and sustainable future.
America has come a long way in supporting Civil Rights for All. But there is still much work to be done. As a United States Commissioner on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday Commission and as an advisor to former South African President F. W. de Klerk, Al’s record on Civil Rights is second to none. He remains strongly involved in opposign any discrimination based on race, gender and religious beliefs. A special effort needs to be made today to guarantee the civil rights of the LGBTQ community.
Healthcare is a human right. It is tragic America is the only industrialized country in the world that does not provide quality and accessible healthcare for its people. One major example is many of our seniors cannot hear, have poor teeth and cannot see because they cannot afford hearing aids, dental care and eyeglasses!
The planet is our home and must be protected and preserved for future generations in a sustainable manner. We must begin the serious reduction of fossil fuel emissions by transitioning to renewal sources of energy. Renewal energy is the best option we have to improve and maintain our planet at this time.
No state suffers more with the imposition of the immoral blockade/embargo on Cuba than the state of Florida. Families are destroyed and business opportunities are lost, to say the least. The Cold War is long over. Accordingly, there is no logical or national security reason for the United States to continue to waste taxpayer money by maintaining a useless embargo that only hurts the very people the embargo was supposed to help. We must immediately reinstate all the gains President Obama’s US/Cuba policy achieved and continue serious rapprochement with Cuba.
We propose a project for the future, with a more inclusive society, where all Americans have access to the rights that the constitution confers on them. A prosperous and at the same time sustainable future.

I met Al when he was a US Commissioner on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday Commission.
Working with other Commissioners, including Senators Bob Dole and Ted Kennedy; Stevie Wonder and Gregory Peck,
the Commission accomplished its goal to make Dr. King's birthday a national holiday.
After my retirement from the US Senate, Al formed a charitable organization, The Alliance for Responsible Cuba Policy Foundation, to seek rapprochement with Cuba, and asked me to be one of its first board members.
I always marveled at Al's versatility in handling adverse situations and his capacity to achieve significant results. In this toxic political environment Al's election to the US Senate would be great for Florida and great for America
As a Cuban, I have found in Albert Fox the voice of common sense in U.S.-Cuba policy.
This issue has been controlled by special interests for far too long.
Revenge, hatred and retribution have done nothing to advance the interests of the American people. The time has come for us to have a policy in line with our values and the best interest of all, American and Cubans. Albert Fox is that voice.
