Totally quoted from an email sent to me:
A quick update about this bill. It is poised for a final vote (date not yet announced) so please try to get your final "shots" in.
What illustrators and designers and photographers etc. are doing now is a postcard mailing blitz... (many of them are using their postcard mailers or printing off something quickly)
On the back they write: "Please vote NO on the Orphan Works bill-- H.R. 5889 for the House; S-2913 for the Senate" and sign it with their name and contact information.
No explanation necessary just "VOTE NO TO THE ORPHAN WORKS ACT."
**But here is the important part: **
**Any correspondence needs to be addressed to the DISTRICT OFFICE. **
Apparently, mail received at district offices, gets to the congressmen faster than it would if sent to their actual offices.
You can go to this link:
Just click on the name and it will take you to his or her website where the mailing address of the district office can be found.
Check out this article printed by the Boston Herald
-the cartoon that accompanies it is great!
