Nepal RPCVs Letter Regarding TPS

To whom it may concern,

I’m a RPCV who served in Nepal during the earthquakes, and I’m really upset by the recent news that DHS is going to prematurely revoke TPS to Nepalis in the US — so I got together with two other RPCVs who served in Nepal with we, and we wrote a letter denouncing this decision.

Could you circulate this to the members of the Friends of Nepal community? Many many thanks!

Namaste saati haru!

I served in Nepal in N202, from 2015-2017, and lived in Nepal during the earthquakes.  I, and two other RPCVs who were in Nepal during the earthquakes, recently wrote a letter denouncing DHS’s decision to prematurely revoke TPS for Nepalis, and also stating that we stand in solidarity with Nicaraguan, El Salvadorian, Haitian, and Sudanese communities similarly effected by changes to their TPS. The link to read and sign the letter is:

Please consider signing by Tuesday May 22nd, and sending along to any other RPCVs who you think might also be interested! As MLK wrote in Letters from Birmingham Jail, “an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

On a side note, if you’ve got connections to any media outlets that you think might be interested in publishing this, please contact me.
