Call Congress send them a message. Call 24/7. They have machines.

Ask your members to CALL the Washington office of their Congresspersons. Tell them to vote "no" on Senate Bill 720, and House Resolution 1697. Emails have little impact.

When you call you can a) Ask to talk to the actual Member of Congress. This will take a while... or b) Ask to speak with the aide with responsibility for the Middle East or c) Make your pitch to whoever answers the phone

Ask them how the Member intends to vote, in which case they may have to get back to you or, just say, "please vote no." Give them your name and address.

Here are their numbers:

Sen Blumenthal: 202-224-2823

Sen Murphy: 202-224-4041

Cong Larson: 202-225-2265

Cong Courtney: 202-225-2076

Cong DeLauro: 202-225-3661

Cong Himes: 202-225-5541

Cong Esty: 202-225-4476
