Dear Colleagues,

There are two matters pending in the Senate that require our 
attention this week. First, we need to engage members of the Senate 
to make the Marrakesh Treaty a top priority in 2016. Please call your 
Senators and urge them to support the ratification of the Marrakesh 
Treaty and help make more published works available to blind people.

Secondly, please urge your Senators to include the language of S. 
2596 (our Space Available legislation in the Senate) in the base 
language of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

I am so thankful for the excellent work you do because no 
organization moves a legislative agenda like the National Federation 
of the Blind. Please call both of your Senators today! The number to 
the Capitol Switchboard is (202) 224-3121.

Thanks again for all you do to make sure blind Americans can live the 
lives we want.

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.

Make a gift to the National Federation of the Blind and help ensure 
all blind Americans live the lives they want
