Today is the day, our Right to Research Coalition Day of Action in support of the Federal Research Public Access Act!
If you haven’t already, please take a few moments to draft an op-ed or letter to the editor explaining FRPAA and how it would benefit you and your campus community, then submit it to your local newspapers. These articles are very effective advocacy tools and demonstrate to your representatives and your local community the importance of this issue and this legislation. Furthermore, you will help raise awareness of the bill and inspire others to contact their representatives, providing a significant boost to FRPAA and its chances to become law.
You can find more details in our post announcing the day of action as well as talking points and tips for writing to your newspaper.
We’re excited to see pro-FRPAA articles appear in campus and local newspapers across the country over the next week, and don’t forget to send a link to nick [at] arl [dot] org when your story is run.
Thanks for your help in making the FRPAA Day of Action a success and bringing FRPAA one step closer to becoming law!
