Please support our efforts to help pass Congressional House Joint Resolution (H.J. Res. 81) that was introduced on March 16, 2010  by New York Congressman Charles Rangel to honor my great-great-grandmother, Madam C. J. Walker, for her “achievements as a trailblazing woman in business, as a philanthropist, and as a 20th century activist for social justice.” This commemorative resolution recognizes her as “one of history’s greatest businesspersons, and a role model for women, African Americans, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and the Nation’s young people.”
In just a few days, we have seen support grow from all over the country from people who have told us they believe this honor is long overdue.

We  would be very grateful if you would write a short note to your Congressional representative urging him or her to support HJ-81. Please try to do so by April 12 when Congress returns to Washington, D.C. from  the spring recess.

We hope you will  share this information with others who might be interested.
