Tomorrow is the Deadline for DES Activist’s Citizens Medal Nomination!

23 Apr

Tomorrow (April 24) is the last day to write and/or Tweet the White House about the Presidential Citizens Medal.

As you know, for the 2nd year in a row, DES Daughter Caitlin McCarthy has been nominated for a Presidential Citizens Medal for her DES activism. 

If you have not already done so, here is your opportunity to help support what Caitlin is doing to further the cause for the DES exposed. THAT helps all of us!

Because of Caitlin’s activism and joint efforts with the offices of US Senator John Kerry (D-MA) and US Senator Scott Brown (R-MA), the FDA finally acknowledged DES as a “tragedy” in 2011 after 40 years of silence.

In a further effort to educate, enlighten, and inspire others about DES, Caitlin has written an award-winning feature screenplay called WONDER DRUG, now in development with producer/star Alysia Reiner. Caitlin also speaks on TV, in print media, and on panels about DES – all while working as an urban public high school English Language Arts teacher in Worcester, MA, a high need school district.

The Presidential Citizens Medal is the second highest civilian award in the United States, second only to the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

If you would like to express your support of Caitlin McCarthy’s nomination for a 2012 Presidential Citizens Medal, please Tweet the following to the White House (@whitehouse): “I support DES Daughter Caitlin McCarthy (@CaitlinMcWriter)’s nomination for a 2012 Presidential #CitizensMedal!”

You can also send a message of support via this webform to the White House HERE.
