American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware

Burma Act Bill


      You are invited to participate in a signature campaign promoted by the Burma Advocacy Group, a coalition convened by the American Baptist Churches Commission on Burma Refugees.
      The goal of the campaign is to gather and submit as many signatures as possible to our US Senators and Representatives to request them to pass the (revised) Burma Bill that is under consideration.
      The Burma Advocacy Group believes the Burma Bill is our greatest opportunity to achieve:
  1. an end to the human tragedy and crimes against humanity in Burma,
  2. an end the brutal military dictatorship in Burma, and
  3. an opportunity to achieve a federal democracy in Burma for which the people of Burma have been giving their lives.


I am writing to inform you that a conference call will take place on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 from 4:30 to 5:30 PM EST to provide information about a signature campaign that American Baptists are promoting for the Burma Act Bill.

The call will include a brief introduction about the campaign and several members of the Burma Advocacy Group will be available to respond to questions about the campaign.

I also have attached information related to this campaign. The attached documents, containing promotional materials and details of how to gather the signatures, are intended for media distribution.

Thank you for forwarding information about the signature campaign and the call to your constituents. A recording of the call will be placed on the ABCUSA website for those who desire more information and are unable to participate on the call. The signature campaign will run through March 31, 2022.
