Keep Supporting ADAPT – Make Calls Today!

Yesterday National ADAPT occupied 19 House offices in honor of ADAPT’s original “Gang of 19.” Yesterday was a huge success, with 19 new cosponsor commitments! Read the press release and check out the updated DIA Dashboard at disabilityintegrationact.org/dia-dashboard

With the new cosponsors and 2 additional yes votes (not co-sponsors), we are now at a total of 204. We are so close to having the number of cosponsors needed to ensure DIA passage in the House of Representatives. With 218 needed, we’re only 14 away!

THANK YOU to those of you who mobilized and made calls to your Representatives to support our ADAPT family in DC. ADAPT will be on the Hill again today, and they still need your support!

Please check your Representative’s current status on the DIA Dashboard. If your Representative is still not a cosponsor, please call now and put pressure on them to cosponsor today! Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or (202) 224-3091 (TTY) and ask to be connected to your Representative’s office, or contact their office directly using the House directory. You can use these fact sheets for talking points.

And of course, keep following and boosting the action! ADAPT will continue to post updates on social media using the hashtags #ADAPTandRESIST, #DisabilityFreedom, and #DIAtoday.
