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! Here is a sample script:
“Hi, my name is ______, and I’m a constituent who lives in your district. I’m calling today to ask you to support LGBTQ-affirming legislation, and to support the allocation of funding for our community’s urgent needs. There are several opportunities for you to step up this session. For example, trans and gender nonconforming people deserve safety and investment in their leadership, LGBTQ elders deserve protection from discrimination, and our students deserve sex education that is both medically accurate and inclusive. Can I count on you to support these issues?”
Step 3: Report back
