Take action

Thank Jay for his support:

This legislator has consistently shown that they will protect abortion rights.

What to say:

Thank them for their consistency. Your support will encourage them to continue to vote this way, and may give them the confidence to become a stronger advocate of pro-choice legislation.

  • Introduce yourself, including your relation to the district.
  • Explain to them why abortion rights and access are important to you. (Personal stories work well here)
