We are having a mass call-in on Monday, October 27, 2014. Please call Gov Christie’s office, at 609-292-6000 beginning at 9am New York Time (-4:00). Call well before 5pm when offices close. If you absolutely do not have a phone, you can use the form on this page: http://www.state.nj.us/governor/contact/ . (Link will open in a new tab.) If you have Twitter, tweet to @GovChristie. We need as many people to make these calls as possible. If you are registered to vote in New Jersey, mention this in your call.
Also, call Ruth Lowenkron at 609 292-9742. This is the Disabilities Rights person who has been far too slow to respond to this emergency situation.
UPDATE as of yesterday is that Gloria reported having some sight in her one remaining eye yesterday. This was intermittent but our hope is that she can see a top eye surgeon who specializes in this sort of injury ASAP to see how much sight can be restored. Trenton Psychiatric Hospital is denying a human being proper medical care.
This denial of medical care is the across-the-board the norm, sadly, for anyone who is labeled “mental patient” in USA society. This lack of parity needs to immediately stop, for Gloria’s sake, and for the sake of us all.
A win for Gloria means a win not only for anyone who has ever accessed mental health “services,” but for ALL humans on this planet.
Please mark your calendars for Monday! If you call from outside the US, use 001 before the number. Together, we can make things happen!
