The South Carolina Advocacy Team requests the following actions. Senator Tim Scott’s birthday is September 19th. That is on a Sunday, so please call his office on Friday 9/17. Tell the staff that you are a constituent and sending birthday best wishes, and ask that he request that SJ Res 10 come to a vote. The number is (202) 224-6121. This is not a group call, but a call-in action.
Please remember that if you get an LTE published, the SC Advocacy Team would like to send it to FCNL and we can share it on the Columbia Friends website.
The South Carolina FCNL Advocacy Team is focused on repealing the Authorization for Military Force (AUMF) for Iraq so that military actions and assassinations cannot occur without the approval of Congress. Please see the full text of the bill here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/senate-joint-resolution/10/text . The following letters to the Editors are in support of this effort.
