The Honorable Senator Michael BennetUnited States SenateWashington, D.C. 20510
Dear Senator Bennet,
Your constituents who are members of Indivisible groups across Colorado welcome you to the 116th United States Congress. We have been grateful for your efforts over the past two years to speak out against the current administration’s policies that are detrimental to the environment, the welfare of our country, and people who live (or seek to live) within its borders. We are confident that we can count on you to continue to do so as we move into the second half of this administration’s term.
The results of the November 2018 election are clear. Coloradans, along with much of the country, are ready for a progressive agenda that prioritizes the welfare of people ahead of business profits. It will be incumbent on Democratic members of the Senate and the House of Representatives to pave the way for the implementation of the progressive agenda in the event that Democrats hold on to the House and flip the Senate in 2020.
The efforts of Indivisible groups to inform and educate their members have empowered many of your constituents to participate in the political arena. We are involved at a level unprecedented for many of us, and we will continue to be engaged over the next two years, encouraging you, as our Senator, to:
1) Support and vote for progressive legislation;
2) Never compromise when compromising means finding a middle ground between a harmful position and the progressive position; and
3) Withhold consent, filibuster, and deny quorum to slow down harmful legislation and nominations.
We look forward to working with you over the next two years.
All the best,
