Oct 8 National Call-in Day for Korea Peace

MOGC joins the Korea Peace Network in promoting a National Call-in Day for Korea Peace on Tuesday, October 8. 

This past weekend, working-level negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea broke down. In the wake of this failure, it is now a critical time to push for lasting peace on the Korean peninsula through congressional action. We are joining the Korea Peace Network in promoting a National Call-in Day for Korea Peace on Tuesday, October 8

Please take a minute to call your District Office and urge your House Representative to co-sponsor House Resolution 152: Calling for a formal end to the Korean War. This legislation calls for a clear road map to a final peace settlement for the Korean peninsula. The Korean War is now 70 years old and is the longest continuing U.S. conflict. It is time to end it! 

Call your representative! 

Go to this website and input your zip code and phone number to be directed to your representative. You will receive a call at the number you provided, which will first tell you whether your representative has already co-sponsored H.R. 152. Then you will be automatically connected to the district office of your representative. 

Suggested script if your representative has not already co-sponsored H.R. 152: 
Hi, my name is ____, calling from ____(city/town)____. I’m calling to urge Representative _____ to co-sponsor House Resolution 152: Calling for a formal end to the Korean War. The American public is tired of endless wars. The Korean War -- now 70 years-old -- is the longest U.S. conflict in the world. Let’s finally end the Korean War so that genuine diplomacy can begin. Please urge Representative __________to co-sponsor and support H.Res.152. Thank you. 

Suggested script if your representative has already co-sponsored H.R. 152

Hi, my name is ____, calling from ____(city/town)____. I want to thank Representative _________ for co-sponsoring House Resolution 152: Calling for a formal end to the Korean War. I appreciate (her/his) support very much and hope (she/he) will find opportunities to urge other colleagues in the House to do the same, as well as voice support for Korea peace in public statements and presentations whenever possible. We need more champions for peace in Korea! Thank you.
