From the Ellin (Joseph and Nancy) Freedom Summer Collection; Typewritten letter from Joe and Nancy Ellin to friends, no date given. Describes events in McComb, Mississippi, including the arrests of several civil rights workers and other acts of intimidation. Requests that the reader write letters to their public officials asking for support for a federal bill that will charge police officers who arrest voter registration workers and those attempting to register to vote with a misdemeanor. The Ellins also ask the recipient to request a temporary restraining order preventing McComb police and Pike County officials from interfering with voter registration.
