Take a 1-minute Facebook action for reproductive choice

From Lalena Howard at NARAL


************************************PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY*************************************
Hi there,

Over the weekend, my great friend and Activist Leadership Circle member, Marci Lieber had the inspired idea to put pressure on the NYS Senate to pass the Reproductive Health Act (s.5808) by contacting her Senator directly on Facebook. So, because of Marci's excellent idea, my organization NARAL Pro-Choice New York is launching a social media blitz to pass the bill in 2010 - can you please take 2 minutes to participate in this effort?

To take action on Facebook:
1. Look up and fan your State Senator's on Facebook and leave a wall post demanding that they pass the Reproductive Health Act this year.  To look up your Senator and their social media links, click here: http://www.nysenate.gov/senators 
2. Fan the NY Senate's Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/NYsenate and leave the same wall post.

To take action on Twitter:
1. Tweet or send a direct message to you individual State Senator.  To look up your Senator and their social media links, click here: http://www.nysenate.gov/senators
2. Send the same message to the full NYS Senate here: @NYSenate: http://twitter.com/nysenate

To take action via e-mail or phone:
1.  Look up your State Senator and their contact info here: http://www.nysenate.gov/senators and leave a quick message or e-mail that says you are a constituent and that you support reproductive choice and want the Reproductive Health Act (s.5808) passed in 2010!

This is what I wrote on my State Senator, Velmanette Montgomery's wall:
"Hi Senator, thank you for your co-sponsorship of the Reproductive Health Act (s.5808). I am a constituent and am writing today to ask you to please do everything you can to pass this bill in 2010. I and thousands more are counting on you!"

This is what I wrote on the NYS Senate's wall:
"I am a constituent living in SD 18 and I am writing today to ask you to please do everything you can to pass the Reproductive Health Act (s.5808) in 2010. I and thousands of pro-choice New Yorkers are counting on you! Thank you."

Please take a minute, copy and paste and  make your voice heard in support of this crucial bill.  

Thank you!
Lalena
