Re: Invitation to the Reception for the 5th Anniversary of the Comfort Women Resolution   

I am writing to invite you as a special guest to the reception celebrating the 5th Anniversary of the Comfort Women Resolution (H.Res.121 of 2007) of the U.S. House of Representatives at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Room HVC-215, at 5 – 6:30 PM, Tuesday, July 24, 2012.  Because you were one of the co-sponsors for the resolution, your attendance to the anniversary reception will be greatly appreciated.

The Comfort Women Resolution, which was introduced by Rep. Honda and cosponsored by 167 Congress members of both parties, expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the Government of Japan should formally acknowledge, apologize, and accept historical responsibility in a clear and unequivocal manner for its Imperial Armed Forces' coercion of 200,000 young women into sexual slavery, known to the world as "comfort women", during its colonial and wartime occupation of Asia and the Pacific Islands from the 1930s through the duration of World War II. The Resolution was unanimously passed on July 30, 2007. It is a landmark human rights framework that inspired many similar resolutions that were passed in Netherland (11/8/2007), Canada (11/28/2007), E.U. (12/13/2007) and Philippines (3/11/2008).   

To celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Resolution, all supporters and organizers for the Resolution will get together on July 24, 2012. The reception will be a great opportunity to share the stories about how the Resolution contributed in improving human rights and women’s rights and what should be done for our continued efforts for the Comfort Women survivors.

 

To attend the reception, please R.S.V.P. by Friday, July 20, 2012 at info@kace.org or 718-961-4117.

                Thank you.

                                                                                                Sincerely,

 

 

                                                                                                Dongchan Kim, President
