An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Stop the Military Action Against Americans

35 so far! Let’s get to 50 signers!

Protests are not insurrection. I implore you, as my elected representative, to oppose the president's threat to invoke the Insurrection Act. Sending military troops to police American citizens is an extreme overreach of power. This would be an offense to the Constitution and to every civil liberty we hold dear. I also call on you to support legislation such as Sen. Brian Schatz’s amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, which would prohibit the transfer of military equipment to local police departments. It is not the role of our Armed Forces to turn its weapons on Americans, and it's not the role of the police to become a domestic military presence. This abuse of power on so many levels cannot continue. The time to stand is now.
