With members of Congress returning to their home states and districts this month, officials with the Conference of Major Superiors of Men suggest scheduling a personal visit, pointing to its effectiveness or a phone call or email.
Here are some points they suggest making:
1) Immigration: Pass the BRIDGE ACT and resist the further building of a wall.
2) Refugees: Welcome refugees and resist the executive orders to halt refugees, especially our Muslim sisters and brothers.
3) Criminal Justice: Make criminal justice reform a priority.
4) Economic Justice: Maintain or increase funding for poverty-focused and peacebuilding programs, and significantly reduce Pentagon spending.
