Call your legislators by this Friday

Call. Text your zip code to (520) 200-2223. Within a few minutes, you’ll get a text back with your legislators’ phone numbers. Call the two bottom numbers and ask the person who answers to request that the Rep or Senator co-sponsor Senate Docket 768, lead sponsor Senator Jennifer Flanagan. It’s that simple!

Email. If you absolutely can’t call because you can’t get away from work during business hours or if you want to back up your phone call, email both of your legislators. We’ve made that process simple, too: Visit our easy tool to find your legislators and a form letter or write your own. The message will come from your email box.

If you don’t see both a Rep and a Senator in your text or you get a return email saying your message couldn’t go through, go to the Massachusetts Legislature website, find your State Rep’s and State Senator’s email addresses, and email them the old-fashioned way.

These state legislators haven’t co-sponsored in the past but have expressed interest in doing so. Give these legislators an extra phone call if you’re in their district:
