Write a Letter to the Editor in Support of S. 186
Senate staffers have told Just Foreign Policy that their offices will decide in the next few weeks whether to co-sponsor S. 186, Boxer’s bill which would send a clear message of support for a significant withdrawal of U.S. troops in July and an end date for the war in Afghanistan. As President Obama determines the extent of the July troop drawdown, this is a crucial time for Senators to weigh in.
Will you call on your Senators as well to support a “significant drawdown” by sending a letter to the editor of your local newspaper? We’ve provided talking points and contact info for your local newspaper which you can access below.
Make sure to edit the suggested text to mention your Senators by name.
Note: Is your Senator Boxer, Durbin, Harkin, Gillibrand or Brown? If so, make sure to thank your Senator in your letter to the editor for co-sponsoring S. 186 already, and urge the other Senator from your state to do the same.
