We’ve been advised of three more Congressional districts that merit special attention in opposing the Orphan Works Act. Would all artists in the following area codes: (262), (513), and (630) please email your representatives:

Representative James Sensenbrenner ( R-WI 5th) Fax (262) 784-9437 (Chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary)

Representative John A. Boehner (R-OH 8th) Fax (513) 779-5315 Fax in DC (202) 225-0704

Representative J. Dennis Hastert (R-IL 14th) Fax (630) 406-1808 (House Majority Leader) Fax in DC (202) 225-0697

When you write, remember to note in your first paragraph that you are a.) a constituent; b.) a small business owner; c.) opposed to the Orphan Works Act. Give a brief account of your professional status. You can verify that this is your representative by entering your zip code into http://www.house.gov/writerep/

We’d also like several artists from these area codes to contact us for an additional mailing to these congressmen. To volunteer, just tell us you’re willing to help, hit “Reply” and for reference, please note your area code. We’ll e-mail you individually to explain how you can help.

Thanks.
