It's time to let Americans back into our Capitol and our House and Senate office buildings so we can talk to our representatives and peaceably "petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
The Capitol building and grounds were closed after January 6th, and remains behind tall barricades in spite of no threats. The Congressional office buildings were closed more than a year ago due to Covid but remain closed to all but staff--that means Americans who want to talk with their elected representatives and staff. Covid is on the decline and you can go to any store, restaurant, parks and everywhere else, yet Congress remains closed to Americans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer want to keep Americans away just as political theater.
Please call your Representative and Senators at 202-224-3121, and ask that they reopen the Capitol building and Congressional office buildings to the public. Thank you very much.
