An open letter to the U.S. Congress

The use of force on peaceful protesters

80 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

It is unconscionable that our laws allow the police to utilize "less lethal" weapons on peaceful protesters. Tear gas is illegal to use in warfare. Rubber bullets can and have maimed and killed. We cannot allow this atrocity to continue. We must make these deadly weapons illegal for use on anyone - citizen, resident, or otherwise - in our country. I speak on behalf of the people who have been attacked by police while exercising their constitutionally protected right to assemble peacefully and speak truth to power. We demand you introduce and promote legislation to make the use of these weapons illegal nationwide and to require that all current stores of these items be destroyed.
