Statewide Call-In Day for New York Health - Friday, June 2, 2017
On Friday June 2, we are FLOODING State Senate offices with calls in support of New York Health, ESPECIALLY in districts where the Senator is not yet a cosponsor of the New York Health Act. You can see the bill sponsors here and you can look up your own Senator here.
We need lots of help to make this day of action a success. To volunteer with outreach (phonebanking and social media!), please email email@example.com
More details coming soon! In the meantime, you can invite others to join you at the event with this link.
Calling Your State Senator Look them up here or dial the NYS Senate Switchboard at (518) 455-2800. You will be asked to give your zip code and the operator will connect you to your Senator’s office.
Here is a sample script:
“Hello. My name is ________. I am calling to urge Senator _______ to sponsor the New York Health Act [S4840] this session because healthcare is a human right. With healthcare under attack by Republicans in Congress, Senator ______ can take action to guarantee healthcare for all of us in New York by supporting New York Health.”
If they respond that your Senator is already a sponsor, say THANK YOU and urge them to promote the bill to their Senate colleagues.
