Tell Congress: Ban the Use of Tear Gas in the United States

American citizens across the country are rightfully raising their voices and putting their bodies on the line to protest unjust violence against Black people at the hands of our government.

And law enforcement officers across the country are using tear gas to dispel peaceful protesters and attack American citizens.

Tear gas is a chemical weapon banned in war. It should never be allowed on the streets of our country.

Congress needs to take immediate action to ban the use of tear gas in the United States and reign in out-of-control police and law enforcement. Add your name to DFA's joint petition with Robert Reich if you agree >>
