We are looking for volunteers Mon-Fri. 3- 4:15pm, now through the 3rd week of June. You would help so much to give an hour and a half of you day off by holding a poster outside both the Senate and the Representative chambers on the second floor. Pair up stand and talk. If your up for a debate on why this bill should be passed know who your District Rep and District Senator are, I will give you a start 😉
Senators assistant tallys calls/emails on bills everyday. Senator de la Cruz plainly stated ask employees to put their Senator and Representative on speed dial, set an alarm and call daily.
