Thanks for supporting the Comfort Women House Resolution Petition. I understand that the House subcommittee on Foreign Affairs is going to wait to take action on the Comfort Women Issue -- they're going to wait for Prime Minister Abe's visit April 26-27th. This means that we all have time to spread the word and get well over a thousand people to sign. Please sign the petition supporting House Resolution 121!

One month and one day and we have 1514 international signatures.

We're asking everyone who signed the petition to send the link to their Congressperson. We need 100 co-sponsors. When the petition began a month ago, there were 42. Now there are 77. We need to convince Congress to do this!

In solidarity,
M. Evelina Galang
