Write to your Reps in Congress
This is one thing everyone can do to support Ukraine right now – write to your representatives in Congress, call and write to the White House, and speak with your elected officials about supporting Ukraine. (Contacts listed on page 2 of this doc.)
It’s easy and will only take a moment of your time.
You will regret it later on if you don’t do this one very simple thing. Do it now. Tell your friends and family to do it.
- Go to https://democracy.io/#!/
- Enter your address (where you are registered to vote).
- Choose the representatives you want to write to.
- Write your message. Here is a sample you can copy and paste:
“I write to you on this grim day to ask that you move swiftly to act against the unprovoked and unjustified war Russia is waging on Ukraine. As your constituent, I ask that you speak for me in the halls of Congress and say that we will not tolerate this violent assault on Ukrainian sovereignty.
Impose the strictest sanctions possible, targeting the Russian elite. Send as much humanitarian, financial, and military aid to Ukraine as you can. Invest now in the resilience of the Ukrainian people, whose fragile democracy is at grave risk of failing under the pressure of this horrific assault.
The United States provided security assurances to Ukraine in 1994 with the signing of the Budapest Memorandum. As a constituent, I request your support for Ukraine in Congress, to uphold our obligations by suppressing the Kremlin’s destructive actions against Ukraine.”
