Judge Diane Joan Karpinski passed away peacefully on December 26, 2020. Polish American Congress, Ohio Division is grateful for Diane's service as Recording Secretary and other valuable contributions. Judge Karpinski loved to interact with people discussing politics, civics English language, history and arts. Her knowledge on those topics was impressive but, what was characteristic for Diane, she was a great listener. She cared about speaking and writing in proper English and was quick to help with composing and editing. As a lifelong legalist, Diane Karpinski also ensured that the procedures at the Polish American Congress, Ohio division were followed and she explained cumbersome legal concepts. We will all miss Diane's sense of humor, dedication and contributions to the Polish American Congress, Ohio Division. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord.

Ohio Division of PAC has engaged in a campaign to repeal an unfair law that reduces Social Security benefits. This reduction applies to retirees who are receiving retirement benefits from Poland but also to many Americans who work in a public sector (city, county, state or federal government) in United States. We are asking all Polish organizations to sign Action's Support Declaration which will petition U.S. Congress members to vote to remove the Windfall Elimination Provision as well as Government Pension Offset.

This year, the “Social Security Fairness Act of 2021” (H.R. 82 and S. 1302 ) was submitted to the US Congress. The bill is supported by Republicans, Democrats and Independents.
