They will meet members of Congress on Monday, and stage a walk and run through the capitol on Feb. 28, culminating in a memorial service in the Rayburn House Office Building -- a congressional office building -- that afternoon.

Taiwanese-Americans in the Washington area will hold a commemorative service at a Washington suburban church today, featuring an address by Taiwan's de-facto ambassador to the US, David Lee (李大維).
