As leaders of the Benjamin Franklin Reform Democratic Club, we join all who pray for peace and support heroic Ukrainians fighting against the Russian invasion. We further support action by the President and our representatives in the Senate and House to provide Ukraine with humanitarian aid to reduce suffering and military support to provide Ukrainians with the means to defend their democracy against this aggression.
We ask our club members, to the extent they can, to support financially and otherwise the organizations that are helping to provide the food, water, medicine, and necessities needed for those whose lives have been devastated by this terrible war. And, of course, we ask that we all speak up to protect those Americans and other residents who are of Russian descent or have Russian-sounding names.
