Sample letter to your senators on a non-partisan investigation
The Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol was planned in advance by various right-wing groups, and resulted in several deaths.
Those groups may have been incited - and even aided - by certain elected representatives. This attack needs to be thoroughly investigated - so that those responsible can be brought to justice and Americans can know the role of those they elected to represent their interests.
A bill to create a commission that would conduct a thorough, non-partisan investigation, already has passed the House of Representatives. As your constituent, I urge you to vote to create the commissiong by passing this bill.
This bill is being blocked by a filibuster
This bill has received the support of a majority of senators, yet Senate Republicans are blocking it with a filibuster.
There are two possible actions you can take...
If your senator is one of those who blocked the bill, write to them asking them to allow it to be voted on by the full Senate.
If your senator already supports forming the commission, write to them asking them to consider modifying (or eliminating) the filibuster process so that this bill can receive a vote.
