Make a mega-minute for spinal cord injury research

Not all minutes of our lives are created equal.

The minute (many minutes) I spent as a kid in the basement of our house watching Gilligan’s Island…hmm, not much impact there.

But some minutes can potentially have a mega impact. I call these mega-minutes. A seemingly small, even momentary act can have years of impact.

One such action is contacting your representative about legislation that is impactful such as AB 190 for funding of the Roman Reed Act. Legislators really are influenced by their constituents on these kinds of votes so make contact!  I’ve done it many times and the legislative staffs and aides are extremely friendly and interested. They don’t bite!

We have already cleared one major obstacle with passing the safety committee earlier, now the action turns to appropriations. I am hopeful and optimistic that things will go well at this level, but we need to do all we can to make that a reality.  Please take a minute, take a mega-minute, and contact some of the members of the appropriations committee to voice your support of AB 190. They are listed below via my friend Roman Reed. If you click on the email link it will directly set up an email for you to send. You don’t even have to cut and paste
