Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by a wide coalition of labor and other unions, as well as many individuals. Organizations include AFSCME, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, International Association of Fire Fighters, National Association of Police Organizations,  and the United Federation of Teachers. More are listed here

Individuals include Jon Stewart and Shepard Smith. The bills have bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate.

Your letter will be sent to your senators, House member, and to the President and Vice President. It calls on legislators to fully fund the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, S. 546 and H.R. 1327.

The more than 45,000 people throughout the United States who are struggling with 9/11-related illnesses need our help. 

These people live in every state and 434 of 435 Congressional districts. They suffer from many chronic diseases, including obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma. Further, medical research identified more than 60 types of cancer caused by 9/11 toxins. Over 10,000 9/11 responders and survivors have cancers caused or made worse by 9/11.

People who responded to and survived a national emergency now face a health care crisis. It deserves a national response.

Please make sure H.R. 1327/S. 546 comes to the floor for a vote. Then vote "YES" to permanently authorize the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act. 

Click here to send this letter or to learn more (you can edit the subject or the letter itself in the next step, if you wish).

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
