Help us fast track a life saving bill
June 12, 2017

Dear CVNC participant,
Today we are asking you to help Christians who are being persecuted in the Middle East by the terrorist organization ISIS. To accomplish this we need to contact our senators
Last week HR 390, the Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act, passed unanimously in the House of Representatives. The bill provides emergency relief to victims of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Iraq and Syria and further provides accountability for perpetrators of these crimes.
For a full understanding of this bill read this article.
At its passage, republican and democrat leaders in the house along with Bishop Oscar CantĂș called for quick action on the measure in the senate.  That is where our voice can be of assistance. Lives are at stake and quick action is needed.
Please click on the link below and urge our senators, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis to contact senate leaders Mitch McConnell, Bob Corker and Ben Cardin asking them to fast track this bill.

The Most Reverend Peter J. Jugis
Bishop of Charlotte

The Very Reverend Michael P. Shugrue
Administrator, Diocese of Raleigh
