If you intend to participate, leave a comment here with your email address and phone number.

The entry on Fashion-Incubator is here. The central event planning site is here (no content yet).

Come on people! We need F-I out in force, it's time for a road trip!

So far we have 3 confirmed from FI. Chapter One, Kid Bean and Smartee Pants.

I know that this trip is an expense that many people cannot consider but if you are on the edge...please attend! This is our chance to finally be heard.

I'm trying to find a decent airfare. I think I am going to go. Even if I can't find a good airfare, I'll think I might drive (4 hrs each way)...LOL

Hope others will be coming, too!

Lisa so glad you are considering the trip! PLEASE join us and bring the kids. This is an amazing opportunity to be heard. As I mentioned in the post the stay has been somewhat of a curse in that our efforts have slowed down. Wait-and-see doesn't work with this law. We need to be heard.

Last time I checked on Facebook there were 14 confirmed, this does not include people who aren't on Facebook. I hope to see many more!

Let me know if you need any information.

Jennifer

Dingell has sent a letter to Obama (pdf) with regard to CPSIA.

Rick Woldenberg wrote:
Dingell clearly feels our pain, as his letter makes clear. His encouragement of Obama’s “prompt” appointment of the next Chairman may be part of his legislative strategy to bring relief. Second, this letter is also consistent with rumors of Democratic concern over our event, and their possible scheme to “upstage” us. This letter is yet another effort to stimulate the appointment and may be an indicator that the appointment is close at hand.
