3. Next step: Call your State Senators regarding last week’s votes on Voting Reform. Thank those who voted “yes”. Then ask your Senator to support these 3 bills. Contact list here.

Thank you, and thank you to all the activists who have worked so hard for years to bring us these historic wins for NY state.
