QUICK! We need YOUR HELP to lobby legislators!
Your financial support is urgently needed to help us attend two upcoming events. We would like to have booths at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, which runs from July 29 through August 2, and at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit in Minneapolis from August 12 through August 15. These two events will provide us with a fantastic opportunity to promote our cause and share our message with lawmakers and attorneys from all over the nation, so it’s extremely important for RSOL to be represented at both events!
RSOL is prepared to send our most experienced representatives. However, their attendance will require significant personal and financial sacrifices since they will have to take time off from work in order to attend both conferences. Leading our delegation will be Larry Neely (Admin Team, Chair of our Scarlet Legal Action Project, and Board member of RSOL-NM). Larry is the ideal person to lead RSOL’s delegation. With his extensive background in legislative advocacy and firm understanding of our particular area of interest, Larry knows how to present our core message of constitutional and civil rights to busy politicians and attorneys.
We must raise no less than $5000.00 to ensure our representatives’ attendance at these critical conferences. Time is short, so your immediate consideration is requested. You can rest assured that we will do everything we can to keep costs down. However, the expenses for two representatives, which will include at least four nights at a hotel, four days of meals, and airfare will cost $1,200.00 for each event. An additional cost of $800 would allow one of our representatives full access to all the sessions at both events. Finally, renting the space and providing necessary materials for the exhibition area is expected to cost more than $2000.00 for both conferences.
We believe you want to see RSOL’s message delivered to the lawmakers and attorneys who will attend these important events. So, please give as generously and as quickly as you can. For your convenience, you can donate online. Please select “Presence at NCSL/NACDL” so that we can be sure to credit your gift appropriately. Or, if you prefer, you may send your checks today to RSOL, P.O. Box 36123, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87176. Write “NCSL/NACDL” on the subject line.
Thank you for helping us help you.
