U.S. Congressman Brad Sherman Promotes Long Walk
On Saturday, February 13, U.S. Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA-30) promoted the Sindhi Foundation's Long Walk for Freedom, Nature, and Love in a series of Tweets. As Founder and Chairman of the Congressional Sindh Caucus, and former Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia, Rep. Sherman has long been an outspoken advocate for the Sindhi community in the United States and abroad.
The preservation of the Sindhi language and culture has been a top priority for Rep. Sherman, who played a major role in securing appropriated funding for a Sindhi language service with Voice of America, the United States' official media news service. He has actively used his platform, too, to combat the enforced disappearances of Sindhi boys and others around the world. In fact, along with fellow Congressional Sindh Caucus member Rep. Jaime Raskin (D-MD-8), Rep. Sherman introduced House Resolution 1231 in the 116th Congress calling for an end to enforced disappearances in Asia and around the world and calling upon the United States to ratify the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
We are grateful to Congressman Brad Sherman for expressing his support for the Sindhi community and the Sindhi Foundation's Long Walk. The 350-mile will begin at the United Nations headquarters in New York City on April 7th and end in Washington D.C. on April 29th, featuring actions and meetings with community leaders en route. The walk will raise awareness for global human rights violations and the climate crisis which binds us together.
