Top Priority for TN: Set up Meetings
Meeting with Senator Alexander's staff in Nashville on 1/20 at 2:00 PM!
Meanwhile, please continue to try to schedule more meetings elsewhere in the state. Here's what you need to do:
- Email the scheduler at Shirley_Pond@corker.senate.gov to meet with Senator Corker, a co-sponsor of PIPA.
- Email email@example.com or fax (615) 269-4803 to meet with Senator Alexander, also a co-sponsor of PIPA.
Be polite and professional, and request a meeting on behalf of Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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.
