We will deliver to the U.S. Senate based on your street address.
I am writing to urge your support for S. 1292, the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act of 2017. This bill would provide that the president appoints by the advice and consent of the Senate a State Department Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism with the rank of ambassador. The Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism is an important position that demonstrates United States leadership in fighting global anti-Semitism. In light of the rise of anti-Semitic incidents around the world, including physical attacks on Jews and Jewish institutions, it is of utmost importance that this position, vacant for nearly two years, be filled. The administration has committed to this appointment and the Senate must work with the White House to advance the staffing of the Special Envoy position as one of its priority actions. The Special Envoy position was created in 2004 and was intended to respond to crises such as the ones we have been witnessing in recent years in Europe and Latin America, and, just last week, in our own country. As your constituent, I respectfully urge you to support and help pass S. 1292, the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act of 2017. Ensuring that the Special Envoy will be an individual who can bring wisdom, knowledge, and expertise in uniting countries to stand up to hatred and bigotry, with the rank of ambassador, would be of tremendous importance to the cause of peaceful coexistence and mutual understating. Each day that passes without an Envoy in the United States has an on the safety and security of Jewish communities worldwide. Thank you for your kind consideration, and again urge you to support S. 1292. Sincerely,
