I've taken the elevator pitch and formatted it onto a one-page PDF suitable for printing and faxing. Especially faxing.

Update 1: Version 2 is also available. It makes our point a bit more dramatically.

Update 2: both versions have been polished up to improve their appearance, and both have been linked in the Tools You Can Use section of our Act page.

If you have access to a fax machine, send a copy of this to your Senators. Use your cover sheet to add a personal message: that you're a constituent, that you're a 99er or know someone who is, this is how the bill will affect you if it passes or if it fails.

Use Congress Merge to reach your senator and their staff.

As always, please and thank you.


  1. Free Faxes:

    Legislators' fax numbers:

  2. Am printing your good material and sending, faxing, and still calling Congress regularly to advocate for 99ers...

    The unemployment rate is actually far higher than conventionally reported:

    -->more like, 23 Million unemployed, and growing. (below link)

    ...NYTimes Op-Ed 8/29/10 by Laura Tyson, a professor at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, was chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisers and the National Economic Council in the Clinton administration. She is a member of President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board.

  3. I just became a 99er and I don't know what to do next... There's no job's out there.... Please help!

  4. @Anonymous,

    This is what to do next: use your voice. Talk to your Senators. Say exactly what you said here: that you don't know what to do next.

    Say it with a fax, if that's your preference. Ask your family, friends and neighbors to do the same.

    Ask your Senators to add their support to S. 3706 - because no American should ever be faced with a crisis like this.

    Keep fighting. You're not alone.
