Act Now: Federal Repeal of Syringe Exchange Funding is in Serious Trouble
Posted Jul 24 2009 10:06pm
The repeal of the Federal Ban on Syringe Exchange Funding is in serious trouble.
Please act now to make sure that the repeal of the federal ban goes through. Call your Representative in the US Congress and tell them to reject the Souder Amendment that prohibits HHS funding for distribution of sterile needles. This amendment is being considered today. Call Now.
To find out who your Congressional Representative is visit the US House website: http://www.house.gov/. There is a “find your Representative” box in the upper left corner where you plug in your zip code. You may need the additional four numbers, in which case the site will direct you to the USPS website plug in your address, and give you the plus 4 code. The direct link for the USPS Zip Code look up is: http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp
Once you’ve taken action, share this alert with your family and friends. We need all hands on deck to defeat this terrible amendment and end the ban on needle exchange funding once and for all.
