LEGISLATIVE ALERT

2/24/2009

Join CWLA's National Call-in Day!

Can't Join Your Colleagues on the Hill in Person? Make a Call Instead!

CWLA invites you to join us for a National Call-in Day TODAY!

Today, over 400 CWLA advocates will converge on Capitol Hill for CWLA's National Conference to get Congressional support for a White House Conference. Those of us who cannot be in Washington will join by phone!

ACTION REQUIRED

Join your colleagues for a National Call-in Day! Call your members of Congress TODAY, and ask them to cosponsor this important bill!

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard to be connected to your members of Congress!
202-224-3121

MESSAGE

* Tell your Representatives to cosponsor H.R. 618

* Tell your Senators to call Sen. Landrieu's office in order to be a cosponsor for the Senate bill - she is expected to introduce it at any time now!

* A White House conference on Children and Youth is needed to focus the attention of the nation on children. This conference is long overdue, as there hasn't been one in almost 40 years! The conference will examine the greatest needs and set the country on a path to reform.
