Two more days to click for Roman Reed law to cure paralysis

This campaign has now ended. Thanks for all your support!

If you haven't had a chance to click to support the Roman Reed law to cure paralysis in California, you only have a few more days left. Don't wait.

The vote will take place on Monday, 6 August, anytime after 10AM (Sacramento time), so you should go ahead and send your email now by going to the bottom of this page.

Will you stand up and be counted for AB 1657 (Roman Reed Law) or will you sit idly by as paralysis and suffering happens? 
We weren't born to be paralyzed. We were born to make a difference.
~Roman Reed~

You CAN stand up and be counted by sending a very simple email with one click to the members of theCalifornia Senate Appropriation Committee at the bottom of the page.

Your emails have already got us through three committees and the full Assembly. We have this committee, then the full Senate, and finally the Governor's signature. 

We've made great progress, but it's still too early to claim victory. 

Just a quick reminder of what AB1657 (Roman Reed Law) is.

AB 1657 provides annual funding for research of spinal cord injury and related neurological conditions such as ALS, Alzheimer's, Parkinsons', Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and others by tacking on a one dollar ($1) surcharge on all moving traffic violations.

There is a clear nexus of connection between car crashes and paralysis. According to the Mayo Clinic, auto accidents cause 46% of all spinal cord injuries and 56% of children's SCI paralysis. It is altogether appropriate to fine those who may cause the condition. 

This way we'll be able to one day realize the dream of paralysis cure.

This campaign has now ended. Thanks for all your support!
