Support Legislation to Expand Visa Waiver Program to Include Poland
American Polish Advisory Council June 16, 2015
Today, the American Polish Advisory Council, a Washington, D.C. based not-for-profit organization, announced that it has joined national efforts to build support for H.R. 1401, also known as the JOLT ACT. The legislation would modernize and expand the US Visa Waiver Program to include countries that meet certain criteria such as Poland.
These efforts are a result of a Visa Waiver Summit that took place in Washington, D.C. in April, a month after H.R. 1401 was introduced, which was attended by representatives of Polish American organizations from across the country who have vowed to join forces in supporting the legislation.
Today, the Visa Waiver for Poland Action Group, an informal collaborative of Polish American organizations and community activists in all 50 states has begun reaching out to their respective Representatives in Congress urging them to support the bill.
“We are encouraging all Polish Americans as well as our friends and neighbors to reach out to their Representatives in Congress to voice their support for the JOLT ACT,” said Gen. Edward Rowny, President of the American Polish Advisory Council. “There are 10 million Polish Americans living in the United States and now is the time to flex our political muscle to put to rest an issue which should have been taken care of years ago.”
As part of these efforts, the Polish American Communication Initiative, a project of the PIAST Institute, has adapted its online tool to send letters in support of H.R. 1401 to members of Congress.
“We urge all Polish Americans to GO TO THIS LINK >>> and utilize this easy-to-use online tool to look up if their Representative is supporting the JOLT ACT and to send a letter if they are not. Our collective voice needs to be heard on this issue loud and clear,” said Darek Barcikowski, Executive Director of the American Polish Advisory Council.
A summary and full text of the Bill are available at LINK >>>.

The American Polish Advisory Council works to involve Polish Americans in the political process and to increase the number, visibility and influence of Polish Americans in public affairs.
