I had an interesting time writing one of these letters. It is a letter to Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. I try to write to a lot of legislators that have foreign aid or foreign policy specific focuses, but Senator Blumenthal’s only real connection to foreign policy is that he is a prominent member of the Senate Armed Forces Committee. So, I had to not only advocate for peaceful assistance for the EYN, but I also had to explain why I think military intervention is not appropriate.

Todays letters go to:

Senator Richard Blumenthal – Senate Committee on Armed Forces
Senator Chris Murphy – Senate Subcommittee on International Development on Foreign Assistance
Representative Rosa DeLauro – US Representative from Connecticut
