NFB Family:

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.
