Stop the Rod has been trying for weeks to get in touch with Congressional aide, Jeff Duncan. Jeff is the contact person for the bill to ban devices to beat children. Unfortunately, their calls and emails are not being answered. Please help, by writing to Jeff at Jeff.Duncan@mail.house.gov
Here is a letter you can use:
Dear Mr. Duncan,
I am a part of the Stop the Rod activist group. We are very interested in moving the bill to ban advertising and selling devices to beat children forward. We have contacted many Congresspersons asking for them to cosponsor the bill. We appreciate your work on this bill, but at this point we need some information:
1) Has this bill been introduced yet? Some Congresspersons are interested in cosponsoring, but are concerned that it has not been introduced.
2) Has your office been in touch with Rep. David Wu's office regarding cosponsoring this bill? He has expressed interest.
3) Would your office please send out a "Dear Colleague" letter to the other Representatives, asking them to cosponsor the bill?
If you could answer these questions that would be most helpful. We look forward to cooperating with you, and truly making this the "Year of the Child" as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has declared. Banning devices to beat children is the least we can do to help prevent child abuse, which is at record levels. Thank you.
Thank you everyone for speaking up!! We need to be loud & clear that we are serious about this bill!! These nasty devices will keep plaguing the US until they're finally made illegal.http://stoptherod.net
