Today the Turkish Coalition USA Political Action Committee (TC-USA PAC) launches Ten Thousand Turks, a bold new grassroots political action campaign. The goal of the campaign is to build a community of 10,000 Turkish Americans and American friends of Turkey by October 29, 2010 that is committed to changing the political dialogue on US-Turkey relations in the United States.

There are few international relationships more important than that between the United States and Turkey. Yet the collective voice of the Turkish American community, one of the most successful ethnic groups in the US, has not been heard effectively. Today, with the launch of the Ten Thousand Turks campaign, we intend to open a new chapter in Turkish American activism in American politics and civic life. 

Our early success, highlighted recently in one of the nation's leading political publications, Congressional Quarterly's Weekly Report, is our hope for the future. Since its inception in 2007, TC-USA PAC has raised over $270,000 from a small group of Turkish Americans and friends of Turkey to distribute as political contributions to candidates who understand the importance of US-Turkish relations.  Imagine the impact we will have when 10,000 Turkish Americans and friends of Turkey join us.

We invite you to join us at TenThousandTurks.org to provide continuous bi-partisan support to candidates who understand our issues. Help us create a vibrant community of 10,000 Turkish Americans and friends of Turkey by October 29, 2010.

Become a part of the Ten Thousand Turks campaign to:

  • Exercise your civil rights, and have your voice be heard across the country.
  • Amplify the voice of Turkish Americans and help defend your heritage.
  • Bring balance to the American political dialogue on Turkey and Turkish American interests.
  • Gain access to a national network of civic-minded Turkish Americans and friends of Turkey.

To join us, visit www.TenThousandTurks.org, where you can learn more about our movement and commit to support us by contributing anywhere from $10 - $5,000 annually.

*By Turks, we are referring to those Turkish Americans and other American friends of Turkey that understand the importance of a positive US-Turkey relationship.
