NYC CAN Building What?

Building What?! Action Alert: Manhattan District Attorney

Fellow Advocates:

Today NYC CAN is meeting with the Chief of Staff of another New York City Council Member. This is our eighth meeting with a council member or their staff, and once again, this one is happening because of your phone calls and faxes.

Thank you!

One month ago many Council Members and majority of their staff were not aware a third building collapsed on September 11th. Today the entire City Council and several hundred staff are acutely aware, and most of them have seen footage of it. You know what that leads to.

There is no way to gauge reliably the number of phone calls made to the City Council Speaker last week, but judging from the number of responses we received far exceeding the usual number, and the fact that the action alert was sent to over 20,000 people, we think it's safe to assume the Speaker is aware A LOT of people are asking the City Council to investigate Building 7.

Where do we go from here?

The Final Day - 1,000 Phone Calls!

Fellow Advocates:
Today is a special day.  For the last three weeks, your phone calls and faxes have worked like a steam roller, paving the way for NYC CAN and courageous council members to begin to raise the discussion about opening a real investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.  Today we bring this marathon effort to a close by making a statement that will resonate through City Hall.

Rather than contacting three council members, we are contacting only one - the most powerful member of the City Council, the Speaker, Christine Quinn.  Our goal is to reach 1,000 phone calls, which will amount to one phone call every 30 seconds.  This tactic is not arbitrary - in order to get through to Christine Quinn we need a gigantic show of support, and it only takes two minutes of your time.

Day 16 Council Members

Fellow Advocates:

Today we head into our seventh meeting with a member of the New York City Council. Your phone calls and faxes made this meeting happen, and they are making a tremendous difference in paving the way for honest and courageous council members to raise the discussion with their colleagues on the City Council. If you want to get glimpse of the action, scroll down to the bottom of this email to read the cover letter of the packet we leave with the council members.

Please remember we need your help tomorrow to reach our goal of 1,000 phone calls the City Council Speaker, Christine Quinn.

Thank you!
