Kinijit delegates Dr Hailu Araya, Ato Gizachew Shiferraw, and Ato Brook Kebede attended the committee meeting to show their full support for the bill.

Several members of the Kinijit DC Metro chapter, including the vice chair, Ato Alemayehu Abebe, prominent Ethiopians, including Artist Tamagne Beyene, Addis Dimts Radio host Abebe Belew, and representative of the International Ethiopian Women Association Dr Abeba Fekade were also at the meeting to urge members to support the bill.

This is a victory for people’s power over money power. Woyanne spent millions of dollars to kill this bill through high powered lobbyists.

Great job Prof. Alemayehu Gebre-Mariam, Ato Neway Mengistu, Wzt. Meron Ahadu and all members of the H.R. 2003 Coalition who labored hard to get this bill passed.

The next step is a vote in the full House.
