Greetings:

I am writing to ask if you would endorse the attached open letter to Secretary General of the OAS Luis Almagro, urging him to play a less partisan role and support constructive means to address the political polarization and economic crisis in Venezuela. Peace and dialogue are the only viable approaches to democratic solutions to the region’s urgent challenges, not further escalation of conflict and threats of invasion.
If you would like to sign as an individual, please include an affiliation. Otherwise indicate the organization for which you are authorized to issue endorsements. Contact info: frederickbmills@gmail.com  or  w.camacaro@hotmail.com.
Thank you for reading the attached open letter, to be delivered and published on June 1, 2016.
