I write to remind you that today is Call Wednesday. Please call your
Representatives today. Let them know that you support H.R. 831: the
Fair Wages for Workers with Disabilities Act, and you hope that your
Member of Congress will become a co-sponsor.
At the end of this email, find a sample call script. If you have any
questions about who to call, contact your local NFB Legislative Director.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work. Together, we will
ensure that people with disabilities receive the fair wages we deserve.
Yours in the fight for fair wages,
Sample Call Script for Call Wednesday:
Good Morning. My name is ___________, and I support H.R. 831: the
Fair Wages for Workers with Disabilities Act. I urge Representative
_________ to please cosponsor this bill.
Currently, people with disabilities are legally being paid less than
the minimum wage. Some are being paid as little as mere pennies per
hour. I feel that this practice is wrong. H.R. 831 will responsibly
phase out this antiquated, discriminatory and immoral practice over a
three year period.
Can I count on Representative __________ to support people with
disabilities by cosponsoring H.R. 831?

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.
