Top Priority for CT: Set up Meetings
There aren't any public events yet, so the most important thing is to get meetings with Senators. Here's what you need to do:
- Call (860) 258-6940 to meet with Senator Blumenthal, who is a co-sponsor of PIPA.
- Fax: "Attn Scheduling" 866-317-2242 to meet with Senator Lieberman, who is a co-sponsor of PIPA. Call 860.549.8463 to follow up.
Be polite and professional, and request a meeting on behalf of Connecticut for Internet Freedom (the folks in this forum) to discuss the PROTECT IP Act and SOPA. Make it clear that you want to meet with the Senator during the January recess, and that you'll be bringing others from your group. Have your calendar open when you call, so you can pick a time that works for you. When finished, post a report-back.
For example: "Hi, my name is ________, I'm with Connecticut for Internet freedom, and I'm calling to request a meeting with Senator _______ during the January recess. The PROTECT IP vote is happening on January 24th, and I wanted the Senator to understand my concerns before the vote happens."
IMPORTANT: If you do get a meeting, post another message. That way others can join you in your meeting. If there's any other specific information we should include in this post, message us and we can add it.
