Oprah Winfrey, Lobbyist? She urges viewers to support Protect Our Children Act
U.S. Senators better prepare for an avalanche! Oprah Winfrey asked her millions of viewers today to call, write and email their U.S. Senators and tell them to "vote yes on Senate Bill 1738--The PROTECT Our Children Act." If passed, The PROTECT Our Children Act will fund additional law enforcement support to catch child sexual predators.
"We need to put pressure on our U.S. Senators to bring [the Act] to the floor," Oprah said on her show. "And we don't want them to just bring it to the floor; We want them to pass it."
Oprah has posted the contact information for every U.S. Senator on her website, along with a pre-written letter in support of the bill that viewers can just sign and send to their senators. You can visit Oprah's web page dedicated to passing the bill right here.
Oprah, known for her philanthropic efforts as well as her media success, is a long-time supporter of child advocacy causes.
