Along with a number of other district 40 Resistance Groups, we are beginning an ongoing effort of pressuring Terrence Murphy (our District 40's New York State Senator), to support legislation that reflects our progressive values.
His phone numbers are:
914.962.2624. local Shrub Oak Office
518.455.3111. Albany Office
This is a first step towards coordinating all of the justice/resistance groups located in our NY 40th Senate District, to increase our effectiveness for political change of our district and its Senate seat. The immediate objective of the Phone Blast is to create a deluge of calls (and emails) to Sen. Murphy each week and over the course of many, many weeks on specific, selected topics like:
1.Make Senator Murphy aware of the depth of progressive sentiment among his constituents
2.Pressure Sen. Murphy to adopt more progressive positions
3.Promote the passage of positive legislation which is deadlocked in the state senate
4.Build a strong well-coordinated support network to help a progressive candidate flip this seat in 2018.
5.Develop a detailed list of unpopular or questionable positions held by Sen. Murphy to be used against him in 2018
6.By keeping the Senator's staff busy responding to our calls and emails; limit the time they have for regressive planning.
This Week We Begin With:
REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS & CONTRACEPTION
We are asking Senator Murphy to co-sponsor (not just support) the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act and to take action to release each of these bills from committee for a vote of the full Senate. Attached you will find a full set of talking points and call scripts.
We would like to keep track of the number of calls made and what kind of response you receive from Murphy's staff in order to measure our effectiveness. If you are able, please summarize and email your short, short descriptions to our campaign email address at NYSD40@gmail.com.
Calls should continue throughout the week so, People, keep calling!
The objective is to overwhelm his staff with incoming calls.
We cannot accomplish that unless we get everyone to participate. We
look forward to hearing from everyone with their results.
Thanks to all of you for your support.
