URGENT AND CRITICAL!!!



The 9/11 Health and Compensation Act faces an uphill battle in

the U.S. Senate -- and time is running out!



The 9/11 health bill must pass in the next 4 weeks, or it dies. Your help is urgently needed. Please sign this online petition which will send a letter to both your Senators urging them to VOTE YES for the bill.



PLEASE NOTE: If you already signed a similar petition in September, that petition sent a letter to your member of the House of Representativesand it worked! The bill passed the House on September 29th.



BUT NOW THE BILL NEEDS TO PASS IN THE SENATE SO WE ASK YOU TO SIGN THIS PETITION TO YOUR SENATORS.



SIGN THE PETITION AT:

http://www.change.org/911_environmental_action/petitions/view/tell_your_senators_give_sick_911_survivors_responders_the_medical_care_they_need_deserve


and then pass the link along to friends and relatives in other states asking them to sign and circulate the petition. We must generate a groundswell of nation-wide support for the bill right away -- Senators in all 50 states must hear from their constituents urging them to VOTE YES!



ASK EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO PLEASE TAKE 3 EASY STEPS:

STEP 1: SIGN THE NEW PETITION YOURSELF TO SEND A MESSAGE TO YOUR SENATORS. GO TO THIS LINK:

http://www.change.org/911_environmental_action/petitions/view/tell_your_senators_give_sick_911_survivors_responders_the_medical_care_they_need_deserve

(Even if you signed the previous petition to House members, sign this one to your Senators.)

STEP 2: REACH OUT TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES IN OTHER STATES. ASK THEM TO SIGN THE PETITION
Because it is essential to build support in all 50 states, please contact your friends, family, and associates who live outside of NY. Tell them about the bill and ask them to sign the petition. We provide a Dear Friends letter below that you can paste into an email, along with the link to the petition.

STEP 3: PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ON SOCIAL NETWORKING MEDIA.

For instance, if you are on Facebook, please post the link to the petition in your status, and ask others to sign the petition and post the link in their status as well.

Thank you!

=========================================================================


Here is the Dear Friends letter:



Dear (name of your friend, relative or associate in states other than New York):

I am writing to ask for your help to gain passage of an important bill in Congress that will protect the health of tens of thousands of people affected by 9/11, the worst act of terror in our nation's history. This bill, the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act (HR 847) passed the House on September 29th and will head to the Senate for a vote sometime in December.



Please urge your Senators to vote for this critically necessary bill, by signing the petition at this link:

http://www.change.org/911_environmental_action/petitions/view/tell_your_senators_give_sick_911_survivors_responders_the_medical_care_they_need_deserve



And please pass it on! It is vitally important for Senators to understand that folks all over the country want to see this legislation passed.

After you have signed, please forward the link to friends, family members and contacts, especially those outside of New York State. Please ask them to sign the petition too -- and ask them to pass it on to their friends, family members and contacts. Then, if you are on social networking media, please direct people's attention to the petition. For example, please post the link to your Facebook status.



You can read more about the bill at the petition link, but here is some background:

9/11 was an attack on our nation that killed nearly 3000. What you may not know is that tens of thousands of people are now sick as a result of the World Trade Center attacks from breathing in the toxic fumes and dust that resulted from the collapse and burning of the Twin Towers. Among the sick are heroic responders who toiled at Ground Zero in the rescue and recovery operation and who came from every state in the country and risked their lives to help othersand also, the people of Lower Manhattan and visitors to the area, the civilians targeted by terrorists on that horrific day.

Many responders and survivors are sick because they believed the federal governments false assurances that the air was safe, and some of them have died and more are dying.

The help provided under the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, includes funding medical treatment and monitoring for the specific diseases arising from exposure to the toxic smoke and dust released in the 9/11 attack. Help is desperately needed and long overdue. Again, please urge both of your Senators to vote to pass this critical bill.



If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to call me at ________________.



Thank you for your much-needed help.
