An effective and easy way to reach your state legislators about making workplace bullying illegal

Sad businesswoman

Posting about the workplace anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill, Senate Bill 1013, on state legislators’ Facebook pages has proven extremely effective because of the public nature of it. (Legislators see your posts directly without your messages getting buried and want to be publicly responsive to get votes in their re-elections.)

So we need your help.

Post on your own legislators’ walls if they haven’t yet supported the bill (or post on all of their walls if you’d like — many will respond in this case even if you’re not in their districts, and others will learn about the bill, too).

Let’s get a buzz going in the State House.

Watch the House of Representatives live each week for the latest on the anti-workplace bullying Healthy Workplace Bill


Curious as to whether or not our State Reps discussed the anti-workplace bullying Healthy Workplace Bill each week? And when they do bring the bill to a floor vote, do you want to know they say about it? One advocate brought our attention today to a live (and archived) stream of the weekly House session, which begins at 11am on Wednesdays. You can listen live or even after the fact to know what bill the State Reps reached in the House Calendar.

If you hear the session before we do, pass along your news and insights by commenting here.

A big thank you to Healthy Workplace Bill advocates
Thanks again to the advocate who shared this valuable news and to all of you who contacted your legislators in support of the Healthy Workplace Bill, H 1771.

If you haven’t contacted your State Rep already, it’s not too late:

  1. Choose from one of two template letters to email to your rep and modify it or write your own letter asking your rep to support the Healthy Workplace Bill, H. 1771.
  2. Use this link to find your State Rep’s email address (listed as the “House” legislator).
