ANCA urges action ahead of vote on Turkey’s return of churches

PanARMENIAN.Net – With just days to the vote by the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee on the Turkey Christian Churches Accountability Act (H.R. 4347), the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) has set Tuesday, June 24, as a day for Congressional calls and social media activism in support of this bipartisan religious freedom measure.

“This Tuesday, please call, post, tweet, and share your support for Turkey’s return of stolen Armenian, Greek, Syriac and other Christian churches,” said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian. “Let your legislators know you expect them to work for the passage of H.R.4347, and then take two minutes to tell your friends and family that you’re taking a stand for the bipartisan Turkey Christian Churches Accountability Act.”

The ANCA is asking all supporters of religious freedom to contact their legislators to support H.R.4347, and then to find creative ways to use the hashtag #ReturnChurches in their Facebook, Twitter and other social media posts.

The U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs, under the leadership of Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA), is set to consider H.R. 4347, the Turkey Christian Churches Accountability Act, on Thursday, June 26 at 9:00 am EST. The freedom of faith initiative is stridently opposed by the Turkish Government.
