Meetings with Senator Levin's staff on 1/17 at 3pm, 1/19 at 2pm
@joshf has set up a meeting with Senator Levin's central staff in Grand Rapids on Tuesday the 17th, and @heyandy889 has set up another meeting on Thursday the 19th. Both need your support! Post back here, and get in touch with the appropriate person directly if you can go! Meanwhile, keep on requesting those meetings, so both Senators know how large the opposition to PIPA really is. Here's what you need to do:
- Call (616)-975-0052 to schedule a meeting with Senator Stabenow, who has no public position on PIPA yet.
- Fax (313)226-6948, ATTN: Kathy to schedule a meeting with Senator Levin, then call (313)-226-6020 to follow up.
Be polite and professional, and request a meeting on behalf of Michigan 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 Michigan 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.
