    I got an alert via email a couple days ago requesting folks in the USA to contact their congressional representatives.

    Signature deadline has been extended (again) to Wednesday, December 12

    Email text:
    Here's the link I found on the ME Action website:

    Pardon any errors that I may have made and please post corrections if you have them. Thanks!

    Edit: updated deadline, removed some extraneous text

    Thank you!

    The email I got had a deadline of Wednesday, Dec. 5th (just double checked because I could have messed up cut & paste). I guess the deadline has been changed, which is good!

    I will update my initial post to show that Dec. 7th is the new deadline.

    Deadline has been extended again. New signature deadline is Wednesday, December 12

    Folks in the USA, if you can, please contact your senators & representatives and ask them to sign.

    The automated tool at this link makes it easy - https://www.meaction.net/2018/12/01/contact-congressional-reps-now/

    PS. I'm making follow-up calls today. I decided to heck with my brain fog, not knowing what to say, and feeling foolish when I can't find words or can barely talk.

    I'm proud to say that I just called my representative's office. I managed to get the basic idea across (it helped that they could look up my email from earlier this week in their database). The person said they would get back to me by email. Hooray!

    Now off to rest and get up the energy to call both my senators' offices.
