Dear Brother Knights,
Your immediate action is needed to help support the Christian communities in Iraq and Syria that are facing genocide at the hands of ISIS. On Tuesday evening, the U.S. House of Representatives will consider H.R. 390, the Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act of 2017. I urge you to contact your Congressman immediately and ask them to support this critical legislation. This important bill takes the necessary steps to ensure that U.S. government aid actually gets to the communities that are suffering. Additionally, the legislation empowers law enforcement entities to build a legal case to charge and convict the terrorists committing these atrocious acts. It has been nearly 15 months since then-Secretary of State John Kerry declared that ISIS is committing a genocide against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East. This legislation is an important next step in ensuring that we support the survival of our fellow Christians. I urge you to visit our Action Alert Center to email your Member of Congress today. You can also look up your Congressman’s phone number and call their offices in Washington directly (just enter your zip code on the top right corner to look up your Member’s information).
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
