Meet with a Legislator

Join Rally+Rise at our scheduled group meetings with State Senators at their New York City district offices—email for more info.

Prefer to fly solo? You can contact your Senator’s office directly to request an appointment (ask for the contact info of the scheduler), or attend a town hall to bring up the Reproductive Health Act there.

When meeting in-person, make a clear ask (“Can we count on the Senator’s support of the Reproductive Health Act?”), listen carefully and try to keep the conversation on-topic, don’t argue (if they’re opposed to the bill, find out what their issues are so you can provide additional information), leave something behind (information, stats, or a local event you’d like to invite them to attend), be gracious (yes, that includes to all staffers), and follow-up with a thank-you note that summarizes your understanding of what the Senator agreed to do.
