Suggested message for you to send:

I'm a constituent from Glen Ellyn and I'm writing today to urge you to support the amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that limits the transfer of surplus military equipment to local law enforcement. The militarization of our police departments creates a more dangerous environment for both the officers and the communities they serve.

Thank you for your time and attention.
