In your letter, 1) explain what reforms you’d like them to advocate for and 2) how these reforms will help address the causes of the problem, and 3) how they will protect our rights in the Constitution and the law.
Questions to consider when writing your letter:
Do law enforcement policies such as stop and frisk or recent immigration policies/practices threaten or directly infringe upon our rights? In what ways? (Consider the 4th, 5th and 6th amendments and federal immigration laws such as asylum, DACA, etc.).
What changes or improvements do you think are most important to advocate for and why?
How will these changes protect or strengthen our rights under the law?
