Urge Secretary Pompeo to Uphold Democratic Values in Brazil

Please join me in sending this letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urging him to make it clear to the government of Brazil that the United States of America finds the positions and statements of leading Brazilian presidential candidate, Jair Bolsonaro, unacceptable.
Mr. Bolsonaro is a far-right extremist that regularly
praises Brazil’s former military dictatorship, has
been charged with hate speech toward minority groups, and said that

to jail leaders of the Worker’s Party. The letter asks Secretary Pompeo for there to be severe consequences if Mr. Bolsonaro follows through on his threats during the presidential campaign.
