Sunday evening I flew to Washington DC to join up with Donna Maria Coles Johnson (IBN), Kayla Fioravanti (Essential Wholesale), Anne-Marie Faiola (Brambleberry) and Lela Barker (Bella Lucce). We will be meeting with senior staffers of the sponsors of The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010 (H.R. 5786).
Please see my blog post about the trip for the details. I will be posting to Facebook and Twitter while in DC, if you want to follow the action.
NOTE: If you are an HSMG member in the DC area and would like to meet us for dinner tonight (August 2nd) we will be at Luigi’s, 1132 19th St. NW, at 6 PM. Come join us!
We have posted an expanded summary of the Safe Cosmetics Act on the HSMG Website, along with talking points, a sample letter and additional information to assist you in your actions to help oppose this bill.
I will do a complete blog post on the results of this trip when I return.
