#MEAction is teaming up with the Time for Unrest campaign and Solve ME/CFS Initiative to bring two new exciting opportunities to educate people on Capitol Hill about ME next week. On Wednesday, September 13, there will be a screening of the the Sundance award winning film, Unrest, directed by and featuring Jennifer Brea. Then on Thursday, September 14, Senator Cory Booker’s office will host a virtual reality (VR) experience of this ground-breaking documentary film.
These are two unique educational opportunities to help congress understand what it is like for people with ME, but we need your help to make sure your member of congress (or staff member) attends.
The most effective thing you can do is send a direct message to your congressperson’s office following the instructions below. This is the best way to get your message seen and responded too. (Note: For those too unwell to follow the below instructions we recommend using SMCI’s automated, one-click solution.)
- Lookup your elected official’s contact information (you won’t see an email address, but they do provide the online contact form for your Congressperson/Senator’s office).
- Copy and paste this message into the office’s contact form.
NOTE: Because this is a purely educational event, sponsored by Senator Booker’s office, we are restricted from inserting lobby or advocacy messages into any invitations. When you ask your member of congress to attend please DO NOT include any other ME advocacy requests.
