Congressman Mike Honda to send second Congressional letter of support for the proposal – Please ask your representatives and senators to sign by Friday, May 22nd!

The office of Congressman Mike Honda (CA-15) has sent a second Congressional letter of support for the stamp. Congressman Honda chairs the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC). We urge you to contact your representatives and senators to sign in support (senators can also sign, though the letter will originate in the House of Representatives).

Ask your representative and senators to sign Congressman Mike Honda’s “Dear Colleague” letter in support of the Japanese American (Nisei) World War II Veterans Commemorative Stamp. A follow-up call or fax often helps in this process a day or two later if you have time. The TOLL-FREE Congress phone number can be used at (800) 828-0498. You will be asked what Congress Member you wish to contact. If you don’t know the name of your representative and senators, ask the Congress Switchboard Operator for help at the 800 number above. Your home’s zip code can be used to locate the people who represent you in House and Senate.

The first Congressional letter, which received 40 signers, was sent in January 2008 (see the list attached below). The CAPAC Board unanimously endorsed the first letter. It is hoped that a second letter will receive more than the original 40 signers.

You can also contact Congressman Honda’s DC office with questions, at (202) 225-2631. Thank you.
