Thanks to those who have already submitted letters or have promised to do so. The deadline is March 20.

  • Urge allies and advocates in your state to contact their Representative and ask them to sign these two letters. The more calls from their home state and district, the more likely it is that a Member of Congress will sign the letters. Urge associates to participate by signing up for our engagement tool at
