Letter of support for Mzenga Wanyama/carpooling information for letter delivery

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.

We are excited to say that we already have 79 letters signed. Can you help us get to 100?

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 afternoon. More information on carpooling or joining us at the Senator’s office can be found by following a link at the bottom of this announcement. We’d love to have a big group deliver these – all are welcome.
