|Subject:||Celebrating Turkic Cultural Day|
|I will soon introduce a resolution designating June 26, 2018 as Turkic Cultural Day. The resolution would recognize the valuable work of the Council of Turkic American Associations and the Turkish Cultural Center of Pennsylvania.
On June 26th, 2018 the Council of Turkic American Associations and the Turkish Cultural Center of Pennsylvania will be in the capitol to host their 9th Annual Turkic Cultural Day. This event showcases the rich mosaic of different cultures, religions, and ethnicities, as well as educates the legislature and visitors about the country of Turkey.
Turkey is one of the very few secular democracies in the Muslim world. As a staunch ally of the US, it has made significant contributions to United States foreign policy. Americans of Turkish origin play a significant role in the ethnic diversity of the United States by incorporating their rich spiritual and cultural heritage and their dedication to the responsibilities of good citizenship.
I encourage you to join in the festivities that will be held in the Capitol Building June 26th.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important resolution.
