Support the Resolution to Commemorate the Polish soldiers and Civilians Who were Murdered at the Katyn

Support the Resolution to Commemorate the Polish soldiers and Civilians Who were Murdered at the Katyn
Dear President Kaminski, I am writing to ask you to encourage the officers and members of your Division and their friends to phone the Washington, DC office of your State's Members of the House of Representatives to request that they co-sponsor House Resolution 986. This resolution commemorates the Polish soldiers and civilians who were murdered by the NKVD at the Katyń Forest Massacre, and it condemns the Kremlin's continuing efforts to spread disinformation about this mass murder.

By calling the Washington, DC offices of our Congresswomen and Congressmen weas Polish Americans show our civic engagement. The Washington, DC offices of our Members of the House of Representatives record the number of phone calls received from their constituents on pending legislation. We must make our Polish American voices heard on Capitol Hill. The more members of the Polish American community who participate, the more likely it is that we will make an impact.

RESOLUTION >>>

You can find your Representatives’ contact information by searching by state here. Below is a suggested phone script; please post it on your Division's web site.

“My name is ______________________________ and I am a constituent residing in zip code ________.
I am calling to ask Representative _____________________________________________________________ to support House Resolution 986, a resolution commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the Katyń Forest Massacre. This resolution honors the Polish soldiers and civilians who were shot on Stalin's orders by the Soviet People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs, also known as the NKVD, in Katyń Forest and several other killing grounds in the western Soviet Union, in April 1940 when Stalin was Hitler's ally. This bi-partisan resolution condemns Russia's continuing efforts to spread disinformation about the Katyń Massacre and World War II. Passing this resolution will strengthen our alliance with Poland, one of our oldest and most reliable allies, as well as serve as a gesture of solidarity with Polish Americans, many of whose loved ones were murdered on Stalin's orders. 

For record purposes, please let me know how many of your members phoned their Representative's Washington, DC office. Thank you in advance for your compliance.

A copy of House Resolution 986 is attached to this email for your review. This resolution is sponsored by Representative Daniel Lipinski (D-IL-3), and co-sponsored by Jackie Walorski (R-IN-2), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH-9), Christopher Smith (R-NJ-4), Paul Tonko (D-NY-20), Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL-8).

If your Representative is already a co-sponsor of the resolution, please send him/her a thank you letter.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Best regards,
Frank J. Spula
President, Polish American Congress
