I am respectfully asking for your support by co-sponsoring S.892—Rosie the Riveter Congressional Gold Medal Act of 2019. This award is to be presented collectively to “the women in the United States who joined the workforce during World War II, providing the aircraft, vehicles, weaponry, ammunition, and other materials to win the war, that were referred to as ‘Rosie the Riveter’, in recognition of their contributions to the United States and the inspiration they have provided to ensuing generations.”
S.892 honors all of the women who made history on the WWII home front, and they have not yet been recognized for their historic contribution. I encourage you to co-sponsor S.892 that collectively honors and recognizes our Greatest Generation of women who selflessly contributed to the war effort—a group that continues to inspire future generations.
Republican Senators are asked to contact Rowan Bost (Rowan_Bost@collins.senate.gov) at Senator Collins’ office to be added as a co-sponsor for the Rosie the Riveter Gold Medal Act.
Democrat Senators are asked to contact Sara Paige (Sara-Paige_Silvestro@casey.senate.gov) at Senator Casey’s office to be added as a co-sponsor for the Rosie the Riveter Gold Medal Act.
I appreciate your consideration.
Rebecca A. Cummings
