Some of our readers may not know what exactly to say in the letter to their Congresspeople and where to send it. Here's a sample letter as written in the Caption Action 2 cause's discussion board.
"I am deaf and the 21st Century Communications & Video Accessibility Act of 2009 (H.R. 3101) is important to me, because it will enable me to understand the streaming videos if they are captioned. May I ask if you will be willing to cosponsor HR3101 - 21st Century Communications Act bill for the benefit of the deaf and hard of hearing citizens?
Thank you very much."

Do not mention Caption Action 2, as it may cause confusion. Caption Action 2 is the name of our grassroots campaign. Our representatives will be more familiar with the 21st Century Act than with Caption Action 2.
