Here’s how you can #StopTheShock
Call the office of FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb at (301) 796-5000, and ask the FDA to release the regulation. We’re organizing two call-in days when the disability community can speak out together. Just like in the past, we’ll also be sharing tips, scripts, and other ways to act if your disability makes calling difficult. The first call-in is Friday, April 13th, and a second will be happening on April 24th. You can use this script:
My name is [NAME] and I am from [City, State]. I’m calling to ask Commissioner Gottlieb to ban the GED shock devices used at the Judge Rotenberg Center. The FDA has had a final rule to ban these devices ready since 2016, but the Commissioner still hasn’t released it. Every day, disabled people are being tortured with these devices. Commissioner Gottlieb needs to immediately release the rule banning the GED. We’ve waited long enough.
Email the FDA at dice@FDA.hhs.gov. You can use the same script you did while calling.
Sign the petition to have the FDA release a regulation against the use of GED.
Spread the word on social media using the hashtag #StopTheShock.
