Step 1: Find your Reps
Start by finding your State Senator and Assembly Members’ contact information here or by calling the State Senate Switchboard (518.455.2800) and the State Assembly Switchboard (518.455.4218). You can also call the Governor’s office (518.474.8390).
Step 2: Call and leave a message
Whether you speak with a staff member or leave a voicemail, your message will get through! Briefly explain why the issue matters to you, state what action you want your representative to take and directly ask whether they will support your request.
