NOW IS THE TIME we need to be firing on all cylinders and in all directions, reaching out ACROSS AMERICA to REPRESENTATIVES not yet signed on to co-sponsor HR 2014 to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the WASP of WWII.
HR 2014 needs our help NOW--before other bills dwarf the request and before the House members begin to make their summer vacation plans.
DO NOT PUT THIS OFF ANOTHER MINUTE.
A FEW IMPORTANT NUMBERS:
74 = Number of Representatives still needed to Co-sponsor HR 2014
63 = Number of Reps with WASP living in their Districts NOT YET SIGNED ON
This week, the Congressional Caucus for Women's Issues and Women and the Military Task Force of the House of Representatives will be attending a ceremony at the Women's Memorial, where the Fly Girls WASP Exhibit is on display. This is a prime opportunity for them to SEE the WASP history up close -- and to sign on to CO-Sponsor HR 2014. EVERY WOMAN should SIGN ON.
This week, EVERY REPRESENTATIVE NOT YET SIGNED ON TO THE BILL NEEDS TO BE CONTACTED. It is simple. The NYY (not yet yes) database is a great resource. Reps in yellow have WASP in their districts. ALL the Reps in yellow and white need to be NUDGED, TWEEETED, VISITED AND INFORMED!
PICK UP THE PHONE OR SEND A TWEET. EVERY VOICE needs to be counted now--and, even if you don't live in the district, make the call on behalf of the WASP. WE are the only lobby the WASP have. WE are their voice. Honestly, all they really care about is that America remembers their service. The Congressional Gold Medal, which is the highest civilian award that Congress can bestow, puts the history of these ground-breaking women pilots on a NATIONAL STAGE--where children can be EDUCATED and INSPIRED.
SADDLE UP--CHARGE--AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
