TLHRC HEARING: Pursuing Accountability for Atrocities – Thursday, June 13 @ 10:00 a.m. – 2200 Rayburn

According to the Mayo Clinic, the rate of celiac disease has almost quadrupled over the past 50 years. Celiac disease is a serious, genetic autoimmune disorder in which ingesting gluten causes damage to the villi of the small intestine. The only treatment
is the total elimination of gluten-containing products, including wheat, barley, and rye sources. For some, failure to avoid these can lead to life-threatening complications. Currently, this is nearly impossible to determine the presence of gluten in prescription
medicine.

Join 110+ Cosponsors – the Horseracing Integrity Act

As the Co-Chairmen of the Congressional Horse Caucus, we invite you to cosponsor H.R. 1754, the Horseracing Integrity Act.  The legislation authorizes the creation of an independent oversight body, known as the Horseracing Anti-Doping Authority (HADA) responsible
for creating and enforcing a national anti-doping program for the entire horseracing industry, including Thoroughbred, Standardbred and Quarter Horse racing, to ensure fair and safe competition across the thirty-eight state-based racing jurisdictions. It will
also safeguard the welfare of the equine athlete by prohibiting the use of medication within 24 hours of a race. We believe our legislation and the establishment of HADA will restore integrity and public confidence in this centuries-old shared national pastime.

Cosponsor H.R. 3078, Bipartisan Legislation to Expand Access to Retirement Savings for Family Caregivers

Please join us as a cosponsor of H.R. 2420, the National Museum of the American Latino Act. Nearly 58 million Latinos, or 18.1 percent of the population, reside in the United States. By 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates this population will reach
119 million, or nearly 30 percent of the population. Latinos also account for 25 percent of the nation’s 54 million K-12 students in 2016, up from 16 percent in 2000. This young, vibrant, and growing community not only represents the future, but they also
make up the largest and fastest growing racial or ethnic group in the country. Yet, Latinos still face systemic under-representation in nearly every facet of American life. The growing disparity is most evident in our arts and cultural institutions.

In August 2017, the Burmese military and security forces perpetrated grave human rights abuses and unthinkable violence against ethnic Rohingya civilians in Burma’s Rakhine state. Since that time, over 740,000 Rohingya refugees, 80% of whom are women and
children, have fled to neighboring Bangladesh where they are tightly packed into one of the world’s largest refugee camps, facing extremely precarious circumstances. Almost 2 years after this crisis began, Bangladesh and the international community continue
to respond to this ongoing humanitarian crisis, while the military leaders in Burma have not been held accountable for their heinous crimes against humanity.
