Dear NOW-NYC Volunteer,

Phone Bank for Assembly Member Amy Paulin,
A Strong Women's Rights Advocate

Monday, Nov. 1, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm | NOW-NYC @ 150 W. 28 St.
Assemblywoman Amy Paulin is facing a hard-charging anti-choice challenger on November 2nd in the 88th district in Westchester.  We need your help to ensure her re-election. 
Ms. Paulin has an outstanding record on women's rights, including fighting violence against women and supporting choice: 
-- She won passage of a bill eliminating the statute of limitations in rape cases, broadening the chance for survivors to secure justice against their attackers. 
-- She sponsored and passed laws to lengthen orders of protection for domestic violence victims, to expand Family Court access to victims of dating violence, and to stop human traffickers.

Help us get out the vote for her on election day!
