Preserve Columbus Day Committee

A Coalition of interested organizations

UNICO National And Italian American One Voice Coalition

Dear Fellow American,

The intent of this communication is meant to enlist your support to preserve Columbus Day celebrated on the second Monday of each year. A Federal Holiday.

Unfortunately various organizations including the NEA have chosen to eliminate the significance of the Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus from our history. Instead they are seeking to influence municipalities and school districts to celebrate the 2nd Monday of October as El Dia de la Raza and Indigenous Day. The NEA went as far as donating $57,500 to achieve the unwelcomed change and the ethnic replacement was meant to abolish Columbus Day. Logic has it by not selecting another day, this action was planned for that very purpose.

As Americans, we are tremendously proud of the Discovery of America and if it were not for the Discovery, this letter would be academic. Our world would be totally different.

We also are proud Italian Americans who are deeply concerned and wary that this unacceptable movement will result in another strike against our beloved heritage.

The message to be imparted to all is- DO NOT JUDGE THE MAN BUT HONOR THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA BY CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS.
Please make your voice heard loud and strong in supporting the preservation of Columbus Day within your Families, Communities. Schools, Organizations and all walks of life by strongly objecting to the abolition of Columbus Day.

Thank You
