There are many ways that our country's leaders can do that. A day to remember them, adopting an individual and raising their case with a foreign oppressive government, joining a human rights caucus, speaking on the floor of Congress...all of these are some of the ways that would confront the powers that are trying to make us forget!
Type in your address below to connect directly with your member on Twitter to encourage them to find a way of standing with those imprisoned for their beliefs. They could support H.Res. 750, a bill creating a national day to stand with Prisoners of Conscience, join a human rights caucus, or adopt one of the Defending Freedoms prisoners from the Tom Lantos Commission on Human Rights.
All it takes is 15 people from a Congressional District to get their Member of Congress to engage!
Select which member of Congress you want to reach out to! They represent YOU and they care what makes their constituents excited. Standing and speaking with those who are unjustly forced into silence is a great way to exercise your rights as an American or U.S. resident!
There are no officials for you to contact on Twitter.
