WASHINGTON DC – 02.21.08 – Over 200 9/11 First Responders, family members and supporters will be rallying on Capitol Hill this Tuesday, February 26th.
From 10:00am to 12:00pm, First Responders will rally on the West Lawn of Capitol Hill.

Scheduled speakers include Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY), Congressman Jerry Nadler (NY), Congressman Tim Bishop (NY) Congressman Dennis Kucinich (OH) and other Congressional leaders. Advocates of several 9/11 health organizations as well as family members and first responders from September 11, 2001 will also be discussing the health issues they currently face.
The rally is aimed to address the following issues:

* The federal government just cut 9/11 Health Care funding by 77%. A paltry $25 million was designated for fiscal year 2009, down from $108 million in 2008. This means every program in existence (including Mt. Sinai) will be operating on a severely reduced budget.

* This past December 2007, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Michael Leavitt canceled plans for the World Trade Center Business Process Center. This center was designed to provide treatment for the 10,000-plus First Responders who reside outside the New York metropolitan area, many of whom are seriously ill.

* The 9/11 Health & Compensation Act (aka the James Zadroga bill) has still not been passed. This very important piece of legislation that would help all 9/11 families has been ignored within Congress up until now–it is time to speak up to to get it passed!
After the event, 9/11 health leaders have several scheduled meetings, including with the offices of Congressmembers Eliot Engel, Jim Moran, Chris Smith, Albio Sires, John Conyers, Kristen Gillibrand, Gary Ackerman, Chris Murphy, Joe Donnelly, Lois Capps, David Drier, Duncan Hunter, John Murtha, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Gregory Meeks, Dennis Kucinich, John Conyers, John Hall and Chris Shays and meetings with the offices of Senators John McCain, Judd Gregg, Sherrod Brown, Elizabeth Dole, Chuck Schumer and John Warner.
The event is being organized and hosted by John Feal and the Fealgood Foundation (www.fealgoodfoundation.com)

What: Emergency Rally for 9/11 Health
When: Tuesday February 26, 2008
Where: The United States Capitol, Washington, DC
Who: Organized by the FealGood Foundation & 9/11 Health Now

A critical event is coming up in the next few weeks and we are asking YOU to participate:
The time is NOW. In the six years since September 11th, the 9/11 Community has become increasingly desperate. More people have fallen sick, friends and loved ones have died, entire families have been torn apart by the 9/11 Health Crisis, which is only worsening as time goes on. Consider the following recent developments:

* The government just cut 9/11Health Care funding by 77%. A paltry $25 million was designated for fiscal year 2009, down from $108 million in 2008. This means every program in existence (including Mt. Sinai) will be operating on a budget that is less than one-fourth of what it was previously.
* This past December 2007, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Michael Leavitt canceled plans for the World Trade Center Business Process Center. This center was designed to provide treatment for the 10,000-plus First Responders who reside outside the New York metropolitan area, many of whom are seriously ill.
* The 9/11 Health & Compensation Act (aka the James Zadroga bill) has still not been passed. This hugely important piece of legislation that would help all 9/11 families has been ignored within Congress for years now–it is time to speak up to to get it passed!

The above developments are too important to let slide. We need everyone to show up and speak up, so that relief will come to the 9/11 Community at last. We CAN change the face of 9/11 Health–But we need YOUR HELP to do it:

We need a LARGE GROUP of 9/11 Families to make the trip. (Transportation and accommodation are provided at no charge). We need Responders, wives, husbands, kids–ANY 9/11 family member who wants to make a difference!
We are shooting for minimum 2 bus-loads…. The more people who show up, the more presence we will have on Capitol Hill…

More details and an itinerary will follow soon, but we are putting the word out now, in order for people to organize. In brief:
