ASK FOR CHANGE
Asking your state legislators for change is simple:
- Find your state legislators.
- Call and ask them to sign onto the bill. Legislators care most about what their own constituents want so they can get re-elected. So if you live in the district of the legislator you’re calling, let whoever answers the phone know that upfront. Tell whoever answers the phone “Hi! My name is (YOUR NAME). I live in (NAME OF YOUR TOWN). I’m calling to ask (NAME OF THE LEGISLATOR) to sign onto (BILL NUMBER AND NAME OF BILL).” They may ask you your address.
- Ask others to do the same.
