Sample to legislators

The Honorable
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative:

As a constituent, I respectfully ask you to support official English legislation in the coming days of the 113th Congress.

In a nation that has become increasingly divided, the time has come to support measures which bring our citizens together. English, our common language, has been a uniting force for our diverse population for generations. It is time to recognize the “glue” of our society with the passage of official English legislation.

Making English the official language of the United States will give our nation a much needed, properly focused language policy. Numerous studies have found that an understanding of English is the key to better jobs, improved health and higher education. By centering our attention on a common language, we can enable immigrants to participate more fully in our economy and political process, binding natives and newcomers together in our great nation.

I hope I can count on your support of this pro-America initiative. I look forward to hearing about your efforts on Official English legislation.
