CALL TO ACTION: Support the Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act (FASTR)
For background information, see our full call to action.
Write your legislators, via the Right to Research Action Center
Call your representatives and express your support for FASTR. You can reach them by calling the US Capitol's switchboard at 202-224-3121 and asking for your Senators or Representative. You can use the talking points below, and you should plan for the call to last approximately 30 seconds.
Thank FASTR's introducing co-sponsors
Even if you're not in their districts, it's important to thank FASTR's introducing sponsors to let them know there is a large community of support behind the bill.
Visit your legislators' local offices
Taking the time for an in-person visit to the office of one of your legislators is an especially effective was to demonstrate your support for FASTR, particularly if you can organize a group of students from your campus or your student organization to join you.
