Meeting with Senator Nelson's staff on 1/18, 9:00 AM, in Omaha!
@mmelhus has set up a meeting with a member of Senator Nelson's local staff in Omaha, and needs your support! Post back here, and get in touch with @mmelhus if you can go. Meanwhile, keep trying to set up more meetings! Here's what you need to do:
- Email Jacqueline Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org to meet with Senator Nelson, who has no public position on PIPA.
- Call (308) 236-7602 to meet with Senator Johanns, who has no public position on PIPA yet.
Be polite and professional, and request a meeting on behalf of Nebraska 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 Nebraska 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.
