Bill intro’d for territory recognition

I introduced H.Res 712, a resolution to annually recognize the first Thursday of October as “U.S. Territories Day.” Across the country, many Americans don’t even know the territories exist. Often, we are literally not even on the Map, let alone internet dropdown menus, history classes, and every federal program we’ve been excluded from. A lack of awareness makes it hard for all territories to advocate for themselves, but I’m working to change that. With this resolution, I hope that school children nationwide will at least once a year learn that the Marianas and other territories are a part of the American Family.
