Congress and Friends Need to Hear from YouTo preserve parental rights, we need to make it an issue the public knows and cares about – and that means making it known. So we would encourage you to plan now to speak with your family and friends next week when you gather for the holiday.
But we are also about to send you another tool you can use for the job!
On Thursday, we will send out an email designed for an audience unfamiliar with the PRA. We need you to pass it on to as many family and friends as you can! So plan now to check for that email on Thursday and send it on.
But Congress still needs to hear from you as wellWith Congress on recess next week for July 4, there are only 12 business days left before our July 19 hearing in the House Constitution Subcommittee.
And while our call blitz has brought us to 58 cosponsors so far, there are still 104 past supporters or pledge signers who have not yet cosponsored. If we only added these, we could almost triple the number of cosponsors in the House!
But every congressman needs a call, even if they haven’t cosponsored before. Eight of the current cosponsors of HJRes110 had never before expressed support for the PRA on this level. Maybe your congressman will join these in signing up!
So please call Congress again. Check on your lawmakers by clicking on your state at parentalrights.org/states. If they are not already cosponsors, call (their D.C. office number will be provided on your state page) and urge them to join on. Then, call them back every day or two until they sign on, or until they give you a reason why they won’t (in which case, forward that to email@example.com). When you call, you might say something like this:
As a constituent, I would urge the congressman to cosponsor HJRes110, the Parental Rights Amendment. I agree with the traditional right of fit parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children without undue government intrusion at any level. Incidentally, so do 93% of all Americans, according to a 2010 Zogby Poll. Loving parents can make better decisions for children than bureaucrats can. So please contact Rep. Trent Franks and sign on as a cosponsor of HJRes110, the Parental Rights Amendment, as soon as you can. I will call back in a couple of days to see how this is going.
Thank you for standing with us in these two ways to support this vital Amendment. We cannot secure the protection of parental rights without you!
