Dear Senator/Representative NAME HERE,
My name is NAME HERE, and I am a resident in YOUR DISTRICT/YOUR STATE. I have been closely following efforts to get a vital piece of legislation passed in the United States Congress, the Safe Schools Improvement Act, and I need to tell you why it is so important that you support this bill and make sure it gets a vote.
More than ever before, our kids are being subjected to vicious bullying in school and over the internet, and as I’m sure you know, state laws are not addressing this problem. We are losing thousands of young people each year to suicide brought on by this horrible situation, and it is time that you, as my elected representative, do something to help stop it.
I am joining 100,000 other citizens in support of this petition: www.change.org/StopBullying, and we are all calling on you and your colleagues in Congress to immediately pass the Safe Schools Improvement Act as an important first step to help make our schools safe, nurturing environments where our kids can learn and grow -- not the places that convince them to take their lives.
Please voice your support for this bill today. Our kids need your help.
Thank you so much for your support! Please post this message to your social media profiles and encourage your friends and family to participate as well!
