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 in 2021. There are bills on the table that would improve access to housing, combat discriminatory policing, improve our understanding of how New Yorkers are affected by hate crimes, and many more. Can you commit to taking action on any or all of these issues?”
