    The Unrest film team sent out a rather long email today. At the bottom of the mail there are links to three actions to take.

    I thought the action to call NIH Director Collins was worth posting in its own thread. The idea is for callers to ask him to watch Unrest and also schedule a screening for the NIH.

    This action can be done by anyone who is able to make a phone call - patients, friends, family, neighbors, etc.

    By the way, whenever I do these type of actions, I try to remember that even if the goal is not met (let's say Collins does not watch Unrest and does not schedule a screening at NIH) the people who are staffing the phones will hear our stories. They may be inspired to watch the movie or look up some information about ME. So it may have some positive effect behind the scenes.

    Here's a google doc with instructions and a sample "call script":
