Thank you for participating in Korea Peace Advocacy Week!
Thank you for participating in Korea Peace Advocacy Week! We met with 82 Congressional offices around the country.
As a direct result of our efforts, we secured five new co-sponsors of H.R.1369, the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act! Special shout-out to participants in the districts of Rep. Delia Ramirez (D-IL-3), Ann Kuster (D-NH-2), Greg Casar (D-TX-35), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY-12), and Jamie Raskin (D-MD-8)! If you live in one of these districts, consider reaching out to their office to thank them for their support.
If you registered for Korea Peace Advocacy Week but weren’t able to participate in advocacy meetings, you can still help by emailing your Representative here.
Your participation makes a real difference to this issue. Just three months after the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act was reintroduced in Congress, there are already 33 supporters of H.R.1369. By comparison, H.R.3446 — the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act in the previous Congress — had 46 co-sponsors after two years of advocacy efforts. In other words, we’re well on our way to surpass the number of supporters of Korea peace!
We hope you’ll also join us in Washington, DC, next month for Korea Peace Action: National Mobilization to end the Korean War!
Thank you again from all of us,
The team at Women Cross DMZ
