Top Priority for KY: Set up Meetings
Rand Paul has scheduled a Town Hall meeting in Murray, KY. He is an opponent of PIPA. Can you go, thank him, and ask him how you can help him defeat the bill?
- Wednesday, Jan 11th, @ 12:30 PM CFSB Center at Murray State University 1401 State Route 121 North Murray, KY 42071-3352
We still need meetings, especially w/ Mitch McConnell:
- Call (502) 582-6304 to meet with Senator McConnell, who has no public position on the bill yet.
- Call 502-582-5341 to meet with Senator Paul, a staunch opponent of PIPA and committed to filibustering the bill.
Be polite and professional, and request a meeting on behalf of Kentucky 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 Kentucky 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.
