Support for Professor Wanyama: sign a letter this week

submitted by reinhard@augsburg.edu

Professor Mzenga Wanyama has a meeting with ICE this Thursday, May 10.  The urgent next step in his case is to get our senators to expedite a response from the State Department on his and Mary’s waiver applications. To that end, all faculty and staff are invited to sign a letter urging Senator Klobuchar to take immediate action to demand that the State Department expedite the waiver application for Mzenga Wanyama and Mary Mzenga.

Where you can sign the letter:

1. We will be in the atrium of Hagfor’s Center before and after most of the 4 Days in May workshops. Look for us and/or the letters at the table outside of Hagfors 150.

2. Copies of the letter to be signed and a reference sheet with phone numbers that one can call are on the counter in Judi Green’s office. Signed letters can be left in a folder there or can be left directly with Judi. We will pick up the letters at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, 5/11.

You are invited to join us as we hand-deliver these letters to Senator Klobuchar’s office on Friday after the 4 Days in May workshops wrap up at 2:30. More information will be forthcoming on carpooling options in the Friday. Daily Amail. We’d love to have a big group deliver these – all are welcome.
