LOBBYING LETTERS

When writing a letter to a member of the U.S. House of Representatives:

Date

Honorable [[Insert the Congressperson’s Full Name]

United States House of Representatives

___________ Office Building, Room _________

Washington, D.C. 20515

 

Dear Congressperson [Insert the Congressperson’s Last Name]:

My name is [Insert Your Name] and I reside at [Insert Your Address] in [Insert Your City and Your State]. I am a strong supporter of The Uniform Reporting Law Enforcement Improvement Act (URLEIA), which is a legislative proposal drafted by ONUS, Inc., to address police brutality at the local, state and national level.

I and those named below request that you declare your support for URLEIA via public announcement and in writing.  The Constitution guarantees all citizens of the United States of America the right to be free from unwarranted searches and seizures. Too many Americans, specifically African-Americans, Hispanics and other minorities, are being killed without justification by law enforcement agents. When law enforcement officers killed without justification, they violate the victim’s right to due process, inalienable right to live, and  Fourth Amendment right to be free from unwarranted searches and seizures. We are simply no longer willing to tolerate officials doing nothing while our children, husbands, daughters and family members are being terrorized and killed by law enforcement.

We insist that you sponsor URLEIA and work to ensure it is enacted completely intact. We will not accept a watered down version of the legislation that leaves members of our community in a position of vulnerability. Please advise me and persons listed below of your willingness to sponsor URLEIA.

Name: _______________________________________________________________________________

Address: _________________________________

City: ___________________  State: __________             Zip: ____________

 

Name: _______________________________________________________________________________

Address: _________________________________

City: ___________________  State: __________             Zip: ____________

 

Include additional signature sections on your letter if more than two people are joining in signing the letter.
