I get to meet Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (see message  below)!   She's a 
real firebrand - hasn't
let the GOP get away with anything and she's a fighter for my particularly  
favorite blind civil rights
     I'll send a picture of the two of us to you.

Dear Fellow  Federationists:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns =

As you  know, our Washington Seminar is fast approaching.  On 
Wednesday,  February 3, it is extremely important that you attend the 
5:00 p.m.  meeting because we will have a special 
guest.  Congresswoman Debbie  Wasserman Schultz of Florida will 
receive a Distinguished Legislative  Service Award for her leadership 
in securing funding for the Digital  Talking Book program of the 
Library of Congress. Congresswoman Wasserman  Schultz is a 
subcommittee chairperson and Chief Deputy Whip in the United  States 
House of Representatives. Please make a point to attend this  meeting 
and express your sincere appreciation for all that she has done to  
create opportunity for blind Americans.  Congresswoman Wasserman  
Schultz is also a cosponsor of the Blind Persons Return to Work Act  
and the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act, and we believe that she  
will soon sign on as a cosponsor of the Technology Bill of Rights for  
the Blind.  Please join us in honoring this great supporter and  
friend of America's blind.

If you're not already in  Washington on Wednesday but live in the 
District or in Virginia or  Maryland, please make an effort to be at 
the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C  Street SW, to attend this special 
presentation.  If you live in  Maryland or can get to the National 
Center for the Blind in Baltimore,  there will be transportation on 
Wednesday afternoon to the Holiday Inn  Capitol for this important 
gathering.  If you would like to utilize  this transportation option, 
please contact Scott White by calling (410)  659-9314, extension 2231, 
or e-mailing  <mailto:swhite at nfb.org>swhite at nfb.org.  Please let Scott 
know  by the close of business on Monday, February 1, if you plan to 
use this  transportation option.  Transportation will leave the 
National Center  for the Blind promptly at 2:45 p.m. and return to the 
Center at  approximately 8 p.m.  Please be sure to arrive at the 
Center no later  than 2:30 p.m. so that the van(s) can depart on 
time.  If you will  already be at Washington Seminar, please make a 
point of being in the  Columbia Room at 5 p.m.  The gathering will 
last until approximately  6:30 p.m.  I hope to see you in  Washington.
