From our commenter SD: I just got off the phone the White House and was told they were getting MANY phone calls and that we all seemed very passionate about this issue. The operator told me that we should continue to call AGAIN and AGAIN. That we should be putting our stories in writing and getting them out to the press. By keeping it in the press will create pressure for results. Thanks for the tip White House operator!
Today we call for the resignation of CDC leader Julie Gerberding for ignoring the health and safety of our children. The following provides contact information for the CDC, White House and other organizations. (We can not guarantee all of these numbers will be reachable throughout the day.) Thank you to two A of A readers for these numbers.
Let's give our children the voice autism took away. Start "dialing."
