Dear Senators Burr, Cassidy, Collins, Murkowski, Romney, Sasse, and Toomey,

On behalf of the millions of people in the communities we serve, the Dream Corps organization wishes to thank you for your actions regarding the recent traumatic events on Capitol Hill.  Dream Corps is a national nonprofit that closes prison doors and opens doors of opportunity, bringing people together across racial, social, and partisan lines to create a future with freedom and dignity for all. 

In the wake of President Trump’s incitement of violence and chaos on January 6, 2021, we were heartened to see you demand accountability with your vote for conviction on February 13, 2021. We were also disappointed, but not surprised, to see you face misdirected backlash in response to your vote.

As an organization, we take great pride in seeking common ground across the political spectrum on legislation that impacts numerous policy areas, including criminal justice reform, climate, broadband access, and tech equity. We know how hard it can be to vote your conscience when party politics urge the opposite. That is why we personally wanted to commend you for prioritizing the safety and security of Americans and your commitment to truth, independence, and sound judgement in your vote. 

In the months and years ahead, we will be working at the federal and state levels to reform our criminal justice system and bring good jobs in the clean energy economy and tech sector to historically underserved communities. We hope to work with your offices on solving these pressing issues and others. Please do not hesitate to reach out if we can ever be of service in these areas. 


Sincerely,

Nisha Anand
CEO, Dream Corps
