TTW Mailbox: Teen Libs Need Our Help!

From Stephanie:

Hi Michael! Teen librarians are in need of your help. Could you post something about what’s going on with DOPA? We need people to contact their representatives and prevent what is about to go into place.

URGENT Action Needed: The ALA Washington Office has learned that the US House of Representatives may try to expedite passage of H.R. 5319, the Deleting Online Predators Act (DOPA), TOMORROW, July 26th. The bill is moving forward as is, with no changes to the original language.

PLEASE CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE’S OFFICE TODAY and ask that he/she oppose HR 5319. The Capitol Switchboard number is: 202-224-3121.

To find out who your Representative in the House is, go here:

Thank you for your efforts to ensure that all library users will continue to have access to critical Internet resources via library andschool computers!

I just made my call! Please call and let your voice be heard!
