You are currently viewing Senate Passes Chinese Exclusion Resolution!

1882 Exclusion Act close upYesterday evening, the Senate passed S. Res. 201–the resolution addressing and expressing regret for the Chinese Exclusion Laws–by unanimous consent.  We could not have done this without the considerable constituent support that all of you provided, or the inspiring and tireless leadership of our prime sponsor, Senator Scott Brown, and  co-sponsor, Dianne Feinstein.   A copy of the Senate resolution and Senators’ accompanying floor remarks is available here.

Now is the time to contact your Representatives to urge them to pass a similar resolution in the House.  Please  write to your Representatives through our Popvox letter-writing program, and for tips on how to contact your Representatives.
