Statewide Call-in for NY Health
June 2, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
FLOOD 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! Lots of volunteers will be needed on June 2 to mobilize calls to targeted state senators. To sign up to volunteer for phone banking, please fill out this Google form.
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.
