320 people worldwide have already sent their email to the Transportation and Housing Committee of the California Senate. The vote is this Tuesday, 26 June at 1:30PM (California time). Now is the time to RISE UP and send your email, too.
Just a little background to refresh your memory about this very important piece of legislation to support a cure for paralysis.
The goal of the the Roman Reed Spinal Cord Injury Research Act is to provide annual funding for research of spinal cord injury and related neurological conditions such as ALS, Alzheimer's,Parkinsons', Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and others, to be able to one day realize the dream of paralysis cure. The funding comes from adding one dollar to moving violating traffic offences as there is a clear nexus of connection between car crash and paralysis. Auto accidents cause 46%of all spinal cord injuries and 56% of children's SCI paralysis, according to the Mayo Clinic. It is altogether appropriate to fine those who may cause the condition.
Please RISE UP and support this important act so one day EVERYONE can!
This campaign has now ended, thank you for your support!
