Dear Member:

Families of September 11 is concerned about recent media accounts of classified reports, prepared by the Homeland Security Inspector General, the General Accounting Office and a private firm, that found serious security lapses still exist at many of our nation’s airports. We remain dedicated to working on public policies that will improve the response to and prevention of terrorism and urge our members to continue pressing their Senators and Representatives for immediate action for the implementation of recommendations that will be forthcoming in the report of the 9-11 Independent Commission.

How to Reach Your Elected Officials
One of the best ways to get your point of view to members of Congress is through a personal letter. Elected officials pay close attention to the mail they receive because every letter represents a certain portion of their constituency. Many elected officials now have e-mail addresses.
