Focus on the Family Action letter

Portions of this letter are posted here for link purposes.

February 16, 2007

If you thought the defeat of Section 220 of S.1 was the end of the threat to our freedom to keep you abreast of what's taking place in Washington, D.C., and your ability to hold your elected representatives accountable – think again. Section 220 would have allowed for fines and prison sentences on organizations like Focus on the Family Action for failure to comply with miles of new red tape governing "grassroots communications."

That's right – despite the overwhelming number of phone calls, faxes and petitions expressing your outrage over the grassroots-lobbying restrictions, we've heard that new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi may be poised to introduce similar legislation in the House....

...We know you feel strongly about your freedoms, and that's why we're asking you to call Speaker Pelosi's office and politely – but firmly – urge her to not introduce the Section 220 language into any future House legislation.

You can reach her Washington office at (202) 225-4965 or her San Francisco office at (415) 556-4862. Don't worry if she's not your representative. Since she's speaker of the House, all Americans can contact her with their concerns.

Also, we are continuing to rally petitions signers to our FocusAction petition. Please forward this message to your friends and ask them to click here to sign the petition preserving our right to petition the government.

Thank you for continuing to stand with us in defense of our precious freedoms. We'll continue to keep you informed about this threat so you can make your voice heard.

Tom Minnery
Sr. Vice President, Government & Public Policy
Focus on the Family Action
