2020 Help Enact Resolution commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the Katyn Massacre


Your help is needed to enact the resolution commemorating:
the 80th Anniversary of Katyń Forest Massacre

To get involved, please contact the Washington, DC office of your State’s
Members of the House of Representatives and/or Senators to co-sponsor
House Resolution 986 (H.Res.986) and Senate resolution 566 (S.Res.566).

This resolution commemorates the Polish soldiers and civilians who were
murdered by the NKVD at the Katyń Forest Massacre, and it condemns the
Kremlin’s continuing efforts to spread disinformation about this mass murder.

By calling the Washington, DC offices of our Congresswomen and Congressmen we as Polish Americans show our civic engagement. The Washington, DC offices of our Members of the House of Representatives record the number of phone calls received from their constituents on pending legislation. We must make our Polish American voices heard on Capitol Hill. The more members of the Polish American community who participate, the more likely it is that we will make an impact.

Below is a suggested phone script:

My name is ___________ and I am a constituent residing in zip code ________. I am calling to ask Representative _______________ to support House Resolution 986, a resolution commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the Katyń Forest Massacre. This resolution honors the Polish soldiers and civilians who were shot on Stalin’s orders by the Soviet People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs, also known as the NKVD, in Katyń Forest and several other killing grounds in the western Soviet Union, in April 1940 when Stalin was Hitler’s ally. This bi-partisan resolution condemns Russia’s continuing efforts to spread disinformation about the Katyń Massacre and World War II. Passing this resolution will strengthen our alliance with Poland, one of our oldest and most reliable allies, as well as serve as a gesture of solidarity with Polish Americans, many of whose loved ones were murdered on Stalin’s orders.
