Take Action: May 24, 2017 Stand up for democracy

Contact the Department of Commerce to voice your concern over Secretary Ross’s comments.

In a CNBC interview earlier this week, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross seemed to praise Saudi Arabia’s lack of protesters.  Protests, marches, and many public assemblies are banned and strictly punished in Saudi Arabia and this is nothing to celebrate.  Freedom to assemble and protest is a cornerstone of democracy.

Please let Secretary Ross know if you are concerned about this.  You can find several different ways to contact the Department of Commerce here.
