Friends and Activists, Image

Our rally at the Supreme Court during arguments for the Myriad gene patenting case is only 4 days away! Plans are coming along well, and I look forward to seeing many of you there.  I hope that you are all planning to join the rally and wanted to reach out to make sure you have all the information you need.  

Please come prepared!:

  • We’ll be at the Supreme Court from 9:30 until oral arguments are over (probably around noon) so bring plenty of water and any snacks you might need. It looks like the weather will be warm, so please dress appropriately.
  • Please don’t bring any drugs, alcohol or weapons – I know this is probably obvious!!!
  • If you are bringing any colleagues, friends or family (and I hope you are!) please have them RSVP or send me an email letting me know how many people to expect. It’s always helpful to have an idea of how many people will be joining us. 

Later in the evening of April 15th Breast Cancer Action is hosting an event from 7pm-9pm, for anyone interested in hearing more about the Myriad case from one of the ACLU lawyers. I hope that some of you will plan to attend that event as well as the rally – it will be a special chance to get the inside scoop about the case and what happened during the oral arguments.
