I made my call to the senator. It took less than 2 minutes. I hope others have been able to fit this in their schedule today.

Dear Fellow Federationists: 

 

There is an urgent need for the Federation to swing into action and do what we do best. We have made significant progress with Space Available; it has been placed in the House version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which is now in the Senate awaiting mark-up. S. 2596 will ensure that all service-connected disabled veterans are given the opportunity to take advantage of this program regardless of which war they served in. I write to ask that you take swift action this weekend and reach out to the members of your affiliate. Please ask them to contact the office of Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Monday, May 9, and urge him to include S. 2596 in the NDAA. Senator Graham's office can be reached at (202) 224-5972.

The relevant subcommittee will be working on the NDAA on Tuesday, May 10, so it is imperative that we act quickly. Please contact Derek Manners, NFB's Advocacy and Policy Analyst, at (410) 659-9314, extension 2210, or at dmanners at nfb.org should you have questions.  He will be available anytime this weekend by phone or email should you need to contact him. 

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Mark A. Riccobono, President

National Federation of the Blind

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
