LET FREEDOM RING RELEASES TV SPOT, SAYS "CARD CHECK" INTIMIDATES
UNION WORKERS AND VIOLATES PRIVACY

PHILADELPHIA, PA - March 12, 2009 - Let Freedom Ring announces
the release of two television commercials that focus on union
elections and the misnamed "Employee Free Choice Act," also known
as "Card Check". The ads may be viewed at
http:/www.zapcardcheck.com

Colin Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring states, "While most
other anti-card check advertising focuses on either the job-
crushing effect or the classic, management vs. labor clash due to
the practice of card check, our ad uniquely focuses on the worker
who would be stripped of the precious democratic right to a
secret ballot."

The script for Let Freedom Ring's ad campaign to encourage U.S.
Senators to vote against card check follows:
Announcer: "Common Sense Thinking on Union Elections. Nothing is
more fundamental to Democracy than the secret ballot."

Rod W.: "Where I am, if they want to unionize and they impose
this 'card check' thing then, I'm gonna feel like I'm ostracized
because I chose not to be a part of that."

Announcer: "There's a proposal in Congress that could force
workers to sign a card right in front of the union organizer
instead of by secret ballot. Some call it, "card check."

Rod W: "Union 'card check' - I definitely think it's intimidating
because it's a violation of one, your privacy. You shouldn't have
to feel intimidated whether to check "yes" or "no" just because
you're standing in front of an individual that

may be representing that union."


Announcer: "Workers now have the right to decide by secret
ballot--privately, and free of intimidation--whether or not to
join a union."

Announcer: "If preserving this democratic right is important to
you, then tell your Senators to vote against Card Check. Make the
call right now."


The National Black Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Harry
Alford stated that if the bill was enacted it will cost African
Americans jobs.

Congressional Republicans led by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) are
sponsoring legislation to protect the right of workers to have a
secret ballot when they are deciding whether they want a labor
union to represent them.
