CSR Encourages Advocacy Campaign

Wednesday, November 12, 2003
The Seamen's Church Institute's Center for Seafarers' Rights is encouraging individuals to advocate for the United States to adopt an internationally developed seafarers' identification document. "We need to let Secretary Tom Ridge know that shore leave and security concerns can be reconciled with this identification document developed with the international community," said Douglas B. Stevenson, Director of the Center for Seafarers' Rights. Stevenson worked with International Labor Organization to develop the seafarers' identification document. The Seamen's Church Institute is providing a form letter that should be addressed to Secretary Ridge. The letter is available at SCI's web site (www.seamenschurch.org) or by calling the Center for Seafarers' Rights at 212-349-9090.
