Dear Friends,We thank all of you who have contacted the United States Representatives and Senators with important messages supporting Georgia. Please continue to make your voices heard. The US policy-makers are listening to you. We are asking you to help us take advantage of this momentum and offer them more concrete foreign policy recommendations. Below is the letter you can use for this purpose. We are happy to remind you how you can contact your Representatives and Senators.
For the House of Representatives go to http://www.house.gov/. Click on "Write Your Representative" in the upper left hand corner (or go here). The next steps are easy and self-explanatory. After you click on "Continue to Text Entry Form" you will be able paste a copy of the letter below. Feel free to fax the letter to policy-makers if it is easier for you to use this mean of communication. You can find fax numbers on individual websites of your Representatives. Again, go to http://www.house.gov/, and enter your zip code in the "Find Your Representative" search engine located in the upper left hand corner. Choose your Representative from the list and click on their name to see the website. We recommend contacting the DC offices, because most district offices forward foreign policy related requests/inquiries to their colleagues in Washington.
For Senators go to http://www.senate.gov/. Click on "Senators", the 1st button in the upper left hand corner. Choose your senator by state or, and visit their website. To send them an e-mail or find a fax number, click on "Contact Us". -- Regards, Maka GabeliaExecutive DirectorGeorgian Association in the United States
