Rally in Newark!
A rally is been organized outside the offices fo Sens. Lautenberg and Menendez in response to them ignoring their constituents' meeting requests. Friday, January 20, 1:00PM at 1 Gateway Center, Newark.
Keep trying to schedule meetings:
- Fill out this form or fax a letter c/o Maria Almeda to: 973-645-0502 to meet with Senator Menendez, who is a co-sponsor of PIPA.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org and call (973) 639-8700 to meet with Senator Lautenberg, who has no public position on PIPA yet.
Be polite and professional, and request a meeting on behalf of New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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.
