Sample Thank You Letter to Co-Sponsors Print
Don't our friends deserve some appreciation and positive reinforcement?

Besides, what works better than positive reinforcement?


The Honorable_________________________
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative______________________:

Thank you for your co-sponsorship of HR 1707, the bill to close and investigate the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security and Cooperation (WHINSEC), formerly named the United States Army School of Americas (SOA). Your leadership in this endeavor is commendable and extremely important to me as your constituent.

We are determined to see operations at WHINSEC suspended, pending investigation into its notorious past. The passage of this urgent legislation would bring a greater promise of hope to the people of Latin America, who have suffered unjustly as the result of long and tragic history of human rights violations that have been associated with the SOA/WHINSEC and its graduates.

There will be a vote next year on this critical issue, and we look to you to take a more active leadership role. If you would like to play a larger role in this issue, please contact School of the Americas Watch (SOAW) at 202-234-3440.

I will look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you.


Your name
