Why it matters that you contact your Members of Congress

There are over 33,000 9/11 responders and survivors that have at least one injury from 9/11, including thousands who have multiple, chronic and disabling illnesses from their exposures to the toxins at Ground Zero. So far, over 3,700 have been diagnosed with cancer from their 9/11 exposures. Sadly, thousands more cases are expected.

In 2010, after years of delays, Washington finally took action to provide medical treatment and monitoring as well as economic compensation to those injured at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and the Shanksville crash site.

The programs created by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act are now helping responders and survivors in every state and in 429 of 435 Congressional Districts. But, these programs are set to expire, leaving 9/11 heroes and heroines without the help that they need, unless you take action TODAY.

Call your representatives in Congress and tell them to co-sponsor the 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act. Tell them that “Remember 9/11” should be more than a bumper sticker.

Here’s how it works

Type in your address in the field above and we will tell you who represents you in Congress; whether they are sponsoring the bill; how they voted on the Zadroga Act in 2010; and the number of 9/11 responders and survivors they represent who will lose their medical care if the law expires.

Most importantly, if they are not cosponsors of the legislation to reauthorize the law (HR. 1786/ S 928) we will tell you what they have said about 9/11 in the past, and you can match their words against their lack of action.

Then, we can connect you on the phone directly to their office in Washington.

If they already sponsor the bill, please thank them and tell them how much you appreciate their support for injured 9/11 responders and survivors.

If they have not signed on to cosponsor the bill yet, ask them to join, and tell them that the nation’s promise to “never forget 9/11” should be more than just words.

You can also tweet to urge them to co-sponsor the legislation or to thank them for supporting injured 9/11 responders and survivors.
