Dear Representative _____________,
I am writing to you to express my outrage over the issue of conflict diamonds, and to ask for your leadership and support in passing legislation to ban the importation and sale of conflict diamonds in the US.
The Clean Diamonds Act will be introduced in this session of Congress by Congressman Tony Hall, and I urge you to support its passage. The Clean Diamonds Act is the only legislation that fully addresses all of the issues needed to prevent American consumers from unknowingly purchasing a blood diamond. There will be efforts by the diamond industry to introduce alternative legislation, but we urge you to support the Clean Diamond Act as the only bill that will close all loopholes.
