California has a whopping fifty-three congressional representatives. Since May 2015, seven of them have joined the Congressional Task Force on Down Syndrome. This task force exists to keep our representatives apprised of legislation which directly impacts our community. It is a no-cost request (#ask).
If your representative has not yet joined, we urge you to reach out to him/her today. Here is a list of the current #DSTaskForce members:
- Julia Brownley (D-CA 26)
- Tony Cárdenas (D-CA)
- Michael Honda (D-CA 17)
- Ted Lieu (D-CA 29)
- Zoe Lofgren (D-CA 19)
- Kevin McCarthy (R-CA 23)
- Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA 40)
Neither of our senators has joined.
I have templates for letters, if you need one.
