WE NEED YOUR HELP! - Tell Congress you support H.R. 3212
« on: October 22, 2013, 11:09:16 AM »
Let's make some noise!

Please take a moment from your day to help victims of International Parental Child Abduction!

CLICK HERE, complete the form and tell your congressional representative that you support the Sean and David Goldman International Child Abduction Prevention and Return Act of 2013 (H.R. 3212)!

As you know, on October 10, 2012, the Goldman Act was reported to the full House of Representatives by unanimous consent of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. H.R. 3212 is an essential piece of legislation that will help empower the U.S. Government with tools designed to assist in the enforcement of the Hague Convention on Abduction.  With your help, the Goldman Act can better equip the U.S. State Department with tools designed to hold Hague Abduction Convention partners accountable.

Together we can bring abducted children home!

Or complete the form on Facebook and share the link with your FB friends and family.

HELLO WORLD! ARE YOU LISTENING? -- Thanks to all of you who have raised your voice for the victims of international parental child abduction. It was only with your help that Sean Goldman was able to come home. Now it's time to help bring other abduction children home.

If you've not yet done so, please: (1) Follow the link http://bit.ly/1acsNbM, complete the form, and tell Congress you support H.R. 3212. (2) Copy, paste and share this message on Facebook/Twitter. Together we can bring abducted children home!

When BSHF tags a US Rep on a Facebook post, shouldn't that post show up on the Rep's wall in the "Post by others" section? I haven't seen any show up and thought perhaps if some us LIKE or comment on the BSHF post, it would draw attention.

I saw your comment Missy. Thanks!!!

I'm not sure, Pam. Maybe they have it so that tags don't show up on their pages. I know they get notified and hopefully the folks maintaining their pages will bring it forward to the rep's legislative staff member.  I'm also tagging them all on Twitter posts (only 2 haven't had Twitter accounts). Also, the rep's legislative staff member get notifications from Popvox everytime a constituent supports the bill on the Popvox site.

Done!
"Every parent who has a child and they tuck him in at night, or her in at night, and they wish the best and only the best and they will always protect the child and do whatever they can, but most of the time they don't have to prove it. I'm in the proving grounds, to myself and to my child.  I have to get him home and I will do whatever I have to. I'll never stop to save him."  --David Goldman

Done.. However I think I messed up somewhere and didn't send Rob Andrews a facebook message. I'll send him a message later and try to get him to sponsor H.R 3212

That is great news!  Now we need the senate to follow suit. 


Finally some traction with legislation aimed at holding non-compliant countries accountable.
