The Italian American One Voice Coalition (IAOVC) is campaigning against those who aim to eradicate Columbus Day by enacting measures to get all Italian Americans involved in defending our heritage and saving our holiday. The IAOVC is asking Italian American friends and organizations to sign the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) Save Columbus Day Petition by visiting www.savecolumbusday. com. A special request has also been made to the government through the “We the People” petition which aims to organize official White House celebrations to recognize and endorse Columbus Day and the Italian American community.
