Peoples Convoy Meet Members of Congress – Plan March 15 Activities

Washington, DC – Members of The People’s Convoy met with members of Congress last week to discuss the devastation that government and corporate COVID-19 mandates have caused, called for legislation to end the president’s declaration of a national emergency concerning COVID-19 and ensure this government overreach does not happen again.


Meetings were held in both the Senate and House chambers. Senators Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) hosted the first meeting, followed by discussions with several members of the House of Representatives. The thousands of participants of the People’s Convoy were represented by co-organizers Brian Brase and Jerry Stetz who were joined by four additional members of the convoy. Also attending the meetings were Pierre Kory, MD, president and chief medical officer of the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, and Paul Alexander, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of The Unity Project.


“I appreciate the Senators and House members for taking the time to listen to us, but this is just the start. This isn’t a right issue, or a left issue. We need to put the divide aside and focus on that fact that our freedoms are being trampled on and people in this country are losing their businesses, their loved ones, their ability to make their own health decisions and, in a lot of cases, their lives,” said Brain Brase, truck driver and co-organizer. “A lot more needs to happen before we head home. We’re going to stay here and get more meetings with elected officials until we see meaningful change.”


Since March 5th, the 62-mile convoy has wrapped the D.C. beltway in a peaceful demonstration of solidarity with the American people who have supported them over the 11-day, nine-state journey from California to Hagerstown, Maryland. The meetings with congressional members marked the first step in working with elected officials to end the mandates that have resulted from the national emergency declaration.


“Although many of the federal and local COVID mandates are lifted, there are still employers, including hospitals, which are requiring employees get vaccinated or boosted or risk losing their jobs,” said Kory. “There is no scientific or medical justification for any of these mandates. There is also no guarantee they won’t be imposed again whenever the government so chooses. The convoy represents all people who want their freedoms back. This includes doctors and healthcare workers.”


The People’s Convoy also met with Republican lawmakers for an additional roundtable discussion with Rep. Sam Graves (R-Mo.) and a handful of other members of the House Transportation Committee.


Also in these conversations were The People’s Convoy truck drivers Ron Coleman, Allen Kelly, and Lisa Huntoon, Jauneil Brooks, as well as Chairman of The American Foundation for Civil Liberties & Freedom Chris Marsten.


“We will keep the convoy going until we are heard,” said Brase. “That might mean organizing at the state level as well. We know that it will take all sides to come together to give us our freedoms back, and I hope that happens sooner rather than later. The government needs to be reminded that they work for us, the American people.”
