Meet with a Legislator


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