Dear Friends, Advocates and Community Members,

In one week, Congress will come back in session. The Autistic Self Advocacy
Network (ASAN), in conjunction with the Alliance to Prevent Restraint,
Aversive Interventions and Seclusion (APRAIS), is asking you to join us in a
National Call-In Day on Thursday, January 21st to tell your members of
Congress to support the Preventing Harmful Restraint and Seclusion in
Schools Act (H.R. 4247/S.2860) introduced last month by Representatives
George Miller (D-CA) and Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-WA) and Senator Chris
Dodd (D-CT). This legislation would provide students with and without
disabilities vital protections against abuse in schools.  We are providing
details on how to contact your members of Congress — please distribute this
announcement widely.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Please call this coming Thursday and encourage your friends, family and
coworkers to participate by dialing the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121
and asking for your Congressional representative to Co-Sponsor H.R. 4247,
and your senators to Co-Sponsor S. 2860.

• To find out the names of your US Senators and Representative, click here
(link to www.congress.org)
• Ask for the offices of your US Senators and Representative
• Ask to speak to the person working on education issues
• Identify yourself as a constituent  and the organization that you
represent (if any)

Message: “ I am calling to urge (Senator y) to cosponsor S.2860, legislation
preventing  harmful use of restraint and seclusion in schools.”

Message: “I am calling to urge (Representative z) to cosponsor HR 4247,
legislation preventing harmful use of restraint and seclusion in schools.”

Thanks for your advocacy. Increasing congressional support for these bills
will help move them through the legislative process towards enactment.
Please call on January 21, 2010 and tell your friends and family to join
you. If you are interested in doing more, please e-mail us at
info@autisticadvocacy.org  for information about how you can arrange a
meeting with your representatives to explain why this bill is essential or

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network and the APRAIS Coalition
