From NFB, Rose Sloan – Opposition to Section 511 of Title 5 of the Reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act (S. 1356).
Tomorrow is our second #FixWIA Wednesday. We had a very good campaign a few weeks ago, but unfortunately our Senators do not understand our concerns with WIA yet.
During our last campaign, we had just over 150 tweets with the hash tag #FixWIA. When we set our minds to something, there is nothing the Federation cannot accomplish. I am setting the goal of 250 tweets with the hash tag #FixWIA. When tweeting, do not forget to use your Senators’ handles. You can find them, along with their Facebook pages here: http://govsm.com/w/Senate.
For those of you who prefer to e-mail your Senators, I have attached the letter I plan to send to my Senators. Please consider using this as a template. For those of you who prefer to call your Senators, feel free to use this email as a guide for your call.
If you would like even more information about our concerns with WIA, please see our blog post at: https://nfb.org/blog/vonb-blog/fix-wia.
Thank you to everyone who helped out with our first #FixWIA campaign. We have invited other disability organizations to help with this effort-together I know we can come up with 250 tweets that embed the hash tag #FixWIA. Let your concerns about WIA be heard! Through our efforts, we can ensure that fewer people with disabilities are subjected to detrimental subminimum wage sheltered employment.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 410-659-9314 extension 2441.
