|Happy holidays, friends!
With the official video of the Bobby McIlvaine Act having just eclipsed one million views on Facebook
, now is the perfect time to send the video to your
members of Congress and urge them to introduce the Act in 2018. See below for a few basic instructions on taking this simple-but-important action — and help us reach our goal of sending 1,000 emails by Friday!
Once you’ve done that, please consider making a donation to our Year-end Fund Drive. When you donate $25 or more ($30 for non-U.S. residents), you’ll receive 50 Bobby McIlvaine Act palm cards that you can hand out in your community.
By making a year-end gift, you’ll enable us to continue our work and at the same time equip yourself with a tool to raise awareness of the Bobby McIlvaine Act.
How to Send the Bobby McIlvaine Video to Your Representatives:
1) Find your members of Congress and their contact info by entering your state (for senators) and zip code/street address (for congresspersons) on https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials
2) Use the pre-written email below (including, most importantly, the video link), though you should feel free to personalize the wording of the email as you see fit.
