FAIR'S HOLD-THEIR-FEET-TO-THE-FIRE

Lobby At-Home Activity for Thursday...Fax Senate Leadership, Call Conferees
The House/Senate conference on the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill began today. Victory on retaining the REAL ID provisions is close, but more work is needed to keep the pressure up.

Since the start of the at-home lobby effort this Monday to coincide with hundreds of activists visiting Washington D.C, we've been getting a ton of feedback from FAIR activists around the country. Your message is being heard loud and clear! Check out the Stein Report for samples of some of your comments.

FOR THURSDAY, YOUR AT-HOME LOBBY ASSIGNMENT IS TO FAX SENATE LEADERS AND CALL CONFEREES.

1. FAX SENATE LEADERSHIP...CICK HERE to start faxing Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

2. CALL CONFEREES...Call as many conferees as possible tomorrow and urge them to retain the House-passed REAL ID provisions in the final emergency supplemental bill. Start with the Senate Democrats and the House conferees who voted against the REAL ID Act. (If you're a constituent, say so when calling.)

Report all intelligence gathered to FAIR's Communication Center by emailing stein@fairus.org, subject line: "FTTF at-home lobby."
