Today, in partnership with 13 other diaspora organizations, AEPAC has sent an open letter calling on the United States to put pressure on the TPLF to agree to an unconditional ceasefire following the Ethiopian Government’s recent withdrawal from Tigray.
In the open letter addressed to all Members of Congress, we are calling for a more constructive approach toward the democratically elected Government of Ethiopia, led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
