Email Congress

Every year, Congress passes scores of new laws dealing with a huge variety of issues from national security to the economy. In the midst of this, it is all too easy for legislation intended to protect children from abuse and neglect to fall by the wayside. For this reason, it is vital that we keep the pressure on members of Congress to pass much needed legislation designed to protect the most innocent and defenseless in society – our children.

Here you will learn about important legislation that is pending before Congress and be able to personally email letters of support to your Congressperson and Senators. We urge you to let them know that you stand with Childhelp in requesting their support for the following bills.

Letter | Child Protection Act

Dear ____________________,

 

I am writing today to ask you to support the Child Protection Act of 2012 (S. 3456). This bill would amend Title 18 of the United States code to require stricter penalties for possession of child pornography, will provided enhanced protection for child witnesses, and increases funding for the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

 

This is a piece of common sense legislation. Individuals who have committed crimes against children or other sex offenses should not have easy access victims and should be severly punished for thier crimes.  In addition, crimes against children via the internet have become increasing prevelent and need to be dealt with.

 

Child abuse is a serious issue and passing this bill is one easy step we can take to help protect our nation’s children. As a supporter of Childhelp, an organization dedicated to the treatment and prevention of child abuse, and a constituent of yours, I urge you to suppose this important piece of legislation.
