Unite 2 Fight Paralysis and the Christopher Reeve Foundation are co-sponsoring a rally and symposium in Washington DC from Sunday, April 30th through Tuesday, May 2nd.

The Rally is in support of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Act and will occur in Capitol Park from 11 AM to 12 PM on May 2nd. Susan Sarandon will host the event as a tribute to her recently departed friend, Dana Reeve.

The symposium on Sunday and Monday, April 30th and May 1st features an outstanding lineup of scientists from across the country. Additionally, there will be a workshop for grassroots activism on the basics of contacting and meeting with your legislators as well as talking points on disability issues.

If you are in the DC area, I encourage you to join us in raising a little hell on Capitol Hill. For more information, you should link to or

Hope to see you there!
