Action Alert # 51 – The Time to Take Action to Back Us Up is NOW!

On April 3, next week, 50+ members of the California Retired Teachers’ Association will be talking to staffers in Washington, D.C. about the GPO/WEP. Many more will be visiting their Representatives in their home offices.

A large number of these CalRTA members also belong to our Social Security Fairness lobbying group, and a team of us from SSFairness will be visiting the offices of other important legislators on the Hill throughout the week.

It is easy to help us!

1. Please sign the resolution/petition that is on the right side of our homepage on our website. (please scroll down a bit)

Join the more than 5,000 signatures that are already on there! Send it to all your friends and family—this is something that hurts you financially. There is also a link to put it on Facebook. Share it with all of your organizations.

This could be the biggest petition, yet!

2. Let us know at if you want us to visit your legislator’s office. (Give us their name and your state district number.) We will hand deliver a packet of information.

3. Are you planning to talk to your Congress Person? Check out Alert #50, “Make an Appointment”:

Or look at for links to helpful ideas for talking to your Representative. We always post our Alerts to our website, so you can catch up on what you might have missed.

As crazy as things are in Congress these days, we must make sure that our voices are still heard! Please do something now!

Thank you!
