Our representatives have made it clear that they’ll only spend their political capital on the things that their constituents bang their doors down about. Even 10 people reaching out can make a huge difference.

We've achieved so much in New York State this year — we're celebrating a dozen landmark voting rights reforms for New Yorkers! Now that the session is over, let's thank our representatives for the work they did in what was the most productive and progressive session in decades. They hear from us when we're upset or want something. Make sure they hear from us when they do the right thing, too!
“Thank you for being a voting rights champion. With your support this session, we strengthened our democracy and made great progress toward more inclusive elections. Your efforts will have a lasting effect for New Yorkers. We can’t wait to continue our work with you next session!”

STEP 2: MEET WITH YOUR REP
Goal: to find out…
• Who supports each measure.
• Who is opposed.
• Who needs more information from one of our expert partners.
If they support, please…
• Ask if they'll co-sponsor a bill.
• Ask if they'll be a champion by writing an op-ed, speaking on the floor, hosting a Town Hall, getting other legislators on board, etc.
STEP 3: REPORT BACK
We need intel, and we need to know where we have support or need pressure, which reps are willing to co-sponsor our bills, and where reps need more info from an expert. Report back about how your meeting went and where your rep stands so we can have an overview of where our campaign is going.
