Washington, DC – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet has posted information on his website for Coloradans who are interested in supporting Japanese relief efforts. Coloradans can visit bennet.senate.gov and scroll down to click on the “Help for Japan” link to access information and links to a list of organizations currently responding to the earthquake and tsunami. Those seeking information about specific U.S. citizens in Japan should contact Bennet’s office or send an e-mail to JapanEmergencyUSC@state.gov.
“Since the massive earthquake and tsunami struck Japan on Friday, we have seen dramatic videos and images of the devastation. Thousands have died and hundreds of thousands are struggling to find shelter. As Japanese officials continue ongoing search and rescue efforts and work to limit the damages to nuclear reactors, my thoughts are with the people of Japan,” Bennet said. “Japan faces many difficult weeks and months ahead, but they can count on our support – the support of our Marines working with Japanese search and rescue teams on the ground right now and the support of Coloradans who have donated to relief efforts. Americans have a long history of helping our friends during difficult times, and this is will be no exception.”
