New York, Write or Call Your Member of Congress Today: Make the U.S. Come Clean on Drone Killings

by Joe Scarry

For years, New York State has been a center for protesting the immoral and illegal U.S. policy of using drones to carry out targeted killings.

Today, people protesting drones are contacting their representatives to encourage support for H.R.4372: the Targeted Lethal Force Transparency Act. If passed, the bill will require the Obama administration to come clean about the killings it has carried out using drones — killings that, up until now, the administration has been able to pretend don’t exist.

So now’s the time: write or call your member of Congress today.  

To determine what district you live in, go to http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

To see an example of a constituent letter, see An Open Letter to Congressman Mike Quigley on H.R.4372: the Targeted Lethal Force Transparency Act
