Keep up the pressure on Turkey to reopen Halki Seminary

Turkish President Erdogan is set to visit Washington, D.C. next week and will meet with Vice-President Biden. On March 25, 2012, Erdogan met with President Obama and told him that he planned on reopening the long-shuttered Halki Theological Seminary in Turkey.

Sign this petition asking the administration to raise the issue of Halki Seminary with Erdogan. We'll deliver your signatures to the White House before the Erdogan meeting.
