Tell your legislators and president how you feel

To the Editor,
Some say Sen. Peter Welch (D-VT) and Rep. Becca Balint (D-VT) “have not done anything” as legislators toward stopping the indiscriminate killing of civilians in Gaza. I might argue the sentiment.

Sanders’ Senate Resolution 504 and visited the UN with Bernie, stating,  “We need action now.” He protested Biden evading Congress by sending unauthorized heavy ammunition to Israel.
