Take #VoteSafe to your state!
If you participated in the May 20 #VoteSafe Digital Lobby Day, thank you!
Here are links to the opening program and closing program. If you could not join us, watch and see how we made an impact together!
Then, go further by lobbying your state elected officials. It only takes four simple steps.
- Advocate together! If you’re a member of an NCJW section, see if your section wants to take action together. If you’re not, check if there’s an NCJW section near you. You can advocate by yourself, with friends and family, or with your larger network.
- Check out which reforms are already in place in your state. Remember, we’re advocating for every state to implement or expand voter registration, no-excuse absentee ballots, safe in-person voting (including early voting), and voter education. Take note of what your state still needs to do.
- Use the #VoteSafe Toolkit to take action. Set up virtual lobby visits with your state elected officials, call their offices, or communicate with them on social media. Or, do all three! Use the #VoteSafe Toolkit for information on how to take action; the “how-to” of advocacy is the same whether you’re taking action at the federal, state, or local levels. Simply modify your “ask” or the phone script based on what your state needs to do (see Step 2). And, don’t ask for federal funding — that’s only an ask for your federal representative and senators.
Tell us how it went! Fill out NCJW’s advocacy visit report form or email email@example.com to let us know how your state advocacy efforts go.
