Sign the Postcard to Congress
in support of the Victims of Agent Orange Relief Act of 2017, H.R. 334, introduced by Barbara Lee
January 5, 2017
I urge you to support H.R. 334
the Victims of Agent Orange Relief Act of 2017 introduced by Barbara Lee
Dear Member of Congress:
As your constituent, I am very concerned about the
serious continuing danger to the health of those exposed to Agent
Orange during the U.S. war in Vietnam. Agent Orange was sprayed
over south Vietnam inflicting death, major illnesses and disabilities
on more than 3 million Vietnamese and hundreds of thousands of U.S.
veterans and Vietnamese Americans. They—and their children
and grandchildren—suffer from cancers, immune deficiencies,
reproductive illnesses and severe birth defects. People continue
to be sickened by exposure to dioxin that remains in the soil in
those areas of Vietnam heavily contaminated by the spraying and
dumping of Agent Orange.
Because I believe that our country has a
responsibility to heal the wounds of war and because Vietnamese
people, Vietnamese Americans, and the children of U.S. veterans
and have yet to receive meaningful help from the U.S. government,
I ask that you support the
Victims of Agent
Orange Relief Act of 2017 – introduced by Rep.
Barbara Lee – to:
Provide medical assistance and disability benefits to affected
children of American Vietnam veterans,
Provide health care and social services for affected Vietnamese,
Provide health care for affected Vietnamese Americans and
Clean up the lands and restore eco-systems
contaminated by Agent Orange/dioxin in Vietnam, and
Conduct research into the health effects of Agent Orange/dioxin in the U.S. and Vietnam.
Please fill out all required fields.
We need your help!
We sponsor speaking tours of Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange to the U.S. And also tours of U.S. Vietnam veterans, both Agent Orange victims and not, to Vietnam.
We currently need funds to have Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange to come to testify to Congress about their urgent need of relief. Please donate today.
