Sample Letter to the Congress:
The Honorable ________
United States House of Representatives [United State Senate]
City, State, Zip
Dear Representative [Senator] ______________:
2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the World War II and Korea¡¯s liberation from the Japanese colonialism, and also the 70th anniversary of Korea¡¯s division into two occupying zones that led to a tragic war and divided states, with seemingly perpetual animosities and conflicts.
2015 is also the 62nd anniversary of the signing of the Korean War Armistice, an armistice that has not been replaced with a permanent peace treaty that will officially end the Korean War. Without a peace treaty in place, occasional military confrontations, spiraling arms race, collective suspicions and hostilities ensue without an end in sight.
As concerned citizens, we call for the signing of a peace treaty to end the Korean War as a prerequisite first step, and ask you to urge the stakeholders to engage in negotiations aimed at reduction of tensions that will pave a way for a lasting peace settlement in the Korean Peninsula that includes normalization of relations, nuclear disarmament and conventional arms reduction.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Your City, State, Zip
