Letter to Congressional Representatives urging them to support the Export-Import Bank Reauthorization Bill (H.R. 121517) containing a prohibition on financing for South Africa. The letter notes that the United States is South Africa's largest trading partner and that Export-Import Bank credits for South Africa - indirect loans and guarantees - provide encouragement to that trading relationship. The letter, coordinated by the Washington Office on Africa, was signed by representatives of the Board of Church and Society; the Washington Communications Office, Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A.; the Washington Office, National Council of Churches, U.S.A.; Washington Office, Mennonite Central Committee, Peace Section; Washington Office for Social Concern, Unitarian Universalist Association; Washington Office for Church in Society, United Church of Christ; and the Women's Division Regional Staff, United Methodist.
