H.R. 620 Vote Tomorrow: Keep Up the Pressure!

Posted on 14. Feb, 2018 by in News

NCIL_logo_mhWe only have one day to stop the House from voting to strip our civil rights away! The House will vote on H.R. 620 tomorrow, so we need to take action today! We need everyone to contact their Representative and urge them to vote NO on H.R. 620!

 

Contact your Representative today!

 

Call! All Representatives can be reached through the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or (202) 224-3091 (TTY).

 

Tweet! Tag your Representative and use the hashtags #HandsOffMyADA and #StopHR620.

 

You can also:

 

  • Use Resistbotto turn texts into faxes, mail, or hand-delivered letters.
  • Use comto find their fax number.
  • Find additional contact information and direct numbers at org.

 

Keep your message simple. Share your personal stories about how the ADA has helped you access to your community. Explain that H.R. 620 will make people wait months, or even years to be able to access our communities; and access delayed is access denied!

 

We cannot – and will not – let this happen without a fight. Our Representatives need to know that we are watching them, and that we will hold them accountable for their vote. They need to understand that their disabled constituents and the 57 million Americans with disabilities want to participate in their communities just like nondisabled people do – and it’s our right!

 

The clock is ticking – keep up the pressure!
