Top Priority for FL: Set up Meetings
UPDATE -- @LSams managed to set up a last-minute meeting with Sen. Nelson's staff in Orlando, on Thursday at 3pm (tentatively). We need as many people as possible to attend. Can you join him? Leave a comment below and get in touch with @LSams.
We need more meetings:
- Call (407)-872-7161 to meet with Senator Nelson's staff, a co-sponsor of PIPA, or drop into a local office with information.
- Call (407)-254-2573 to meet with Senator Rubio, a co-sponsor of PIPA.
Be polite and professional, and request a meeting on behalf of Florida 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 Florida 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.
