130 years after the Chinese Exclusion Act

Last October the US Senate unanimously passed a Senate Resolution (sponsored by Senator Dianne Feinstein of CA) that expressed Congressional regrets for the discriminatory laws, including the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, against Chinese immigrants in the 20th century.  Next Monday  (June 18th) at 4 PM (EST) the House expects to vote on a similar bill drafted by Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA).  To find out more about the bill, please visit The Hill.com or opencongress.org

I urge you to spread the word about the upcoming event.  More importantly, please write your US House Representatives calling them to vote in favor of H. Res. #683.
