The Justice Aganist Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) makes it impossible for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, or any other entity, to claim that as a sovereign it is immune from any legal responsibility for its role in the 2001 terror attacks. This legislation is imperative in the efforts to finally see justice for the 9/11 victims. Led by Senator Charles Schumer and his staff, JASTA was passed by the U.S. Senate on December 11, 2014.
The passage of JASTA will be debated by the current House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. on January 5, 2015. We ask the one hundred thousand 9/11 victims and their family members for their assistance in pushing for JASTA’s passage in the house. To support JASTA, it is essential that each person do the following:
1. Contact (in person, by phone, email, or mail) your incoming Congress man or woman (the person elected to start in January) and urge him or her to pass JASTA immediately in the new Congress. Each of you should state in your own words that no one (country, entity, or person) should have immunity for providing the material support al-Qaeda needed to mount the 9/11 attacks. We believe that all countries, persons or organizations who supported al-Qaeda should be held responsible.
2. Have each family member (parent, siblings, child or grandchild) contact their Congress men and women and urge passage of JASTA. You can find the contact here.
3. Finally, we ask that you contact Senator Charles Schumer and his assistant Emily Amick to thank them for their extraordinary efforts in passing JASTA in the Senate, particularly in the face of strong opposition. They can be reached here.
