Our work isn’t finished just yet! Here are a few more things you can do to help with the Caterpillar campaign:
1. Write your own letter, thanking the museum for canceling their award ceremony, but asking them to rescind the prize completely. Use our sample email or send your own email message to Mr. Chase Rynd, Executive Director of the National Building Museum, [email protected]. Or call the National Building Museum at (202) 272-2448 and ask to speak to the Executive Director, Mr. Chase Rynd. Courteously explain why the National Building Museum must reconsider its decision to award the Henry C. Turner Prize to Caterpillar Inc.
2. Contact the Washington Post to comment on their failure to mention the use of CAT equipment against Palestinians in Israel/Palestine in their article about the cancellation of the award ceremony. Post reporter Monica Hesse interviewed Craig Corrie, received our press releases and other materials, and yet left out this critical information. You can email Monica at [email protected] or send a letter to the editor at [email protected]
3. Consider making a tax deductible a donation to the Rachel Corrie Foundation so that we can continue this very important corporate accountability work! Consider joining our growing list of monthly donors who provide us with financial stability. The less time we need to spend fund raising, the more time we can spend in action!
