***URGENT CALL TO ACTION ON LSC FUNDING***
Please take a few minutes today (June 9, 2015) to call your Senators and urge them to reach out to Chairman Shelby and Ranking Minority member Mikulski and urge them to increase LSC funding in the Senate's Appropriations Subcommittee for Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies. You can reach your Senator by calling the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and asking to be connected to your Senator's office. Attached is a Fact Sheet to give you some background information for the call.
The Senate Subcommittee is scheduled to mark-up the bill on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 and the full Senate Appropriations Committee will review it on Thursday, June 11, 2015 so it is important for you to call today, Tuesday June 9, 2015!!!
NOLSW/UAW Local 2320 members are incredible advocates for their clients and this is another way for members to allow their voice to be heard. We need to have each Senator talking to Senators Shelby and Mikulski about the importance of LSC funding.
Just a reminder. Members have a right to have their voice heard in this process, but are not allowed to use LSC-funded program resources for this. When members call, say that you are a member of NOLSW, UAW Local 2320. Please remember to not use any program resources for these calls and to use personal phones and computers on non-work time.
Also, encourage friends, family and coworkers to also call. Please let NOLSW President Gordon Deane (email firstname.lastname@example.org) know when you make the calls and the response. Thanks to everyone for their help!
