Activists Meet Up!

In the interests of promoting greater unity in the CPSIA fight and given that Fashion-Incubator has had the most active participation with solid information (no mythinformation or rumors), the CPSIA section of the forum has been opened to the public. At last count there are 40 different threads, nearly 700 posts and thousands upon thousands of views. Anyone can read, post, create stickies, announcements etc in this section (all other sections of the forum are closed to the public unless you join).

In participating, act as you would sitting in someone’s living room. Please don’t post “is my [child related] product exempt” because it isn’t. It just isn’t. Likewise, any posts containing rumors, unsubstantiated claims or mythinformation will be removed. I realize it will be difficult and time consuming to read through some of the multi page threads but please make use of the search feature because it is likely your question has been answered. As most of them have been; we’re focusing on activism at this point.

Speaking of activism, there is now an automated method of emailing all of your legislators from one simple window. Scroll down, fill out the form (don’t forget to include your state of residence) and all of your senators and congressmen will receive your message.
