Call-in Action

Jan 19, 2011 | by admin

We need as many people as possible to make calls this week.

We have made it easy for you to support SB796. Get out a coffee or tea, pull out a phone, and get ready to make social justice happen. We need to call the folks on the list below. In most cases you will reach an answering machine. Take a second to practice reading the script below and then start working through the calls.

Hello, I want to speak (or leave a message) to/for Sen.________

My name is ___ , I’m calling from _____, VA, and I wanted to share my support for SB796. I want the state to be financially responsible in how we handle corrections and our judicial system. SB796 will support common sense criminal justice policy, while making sure that those who are returning to our communities from prison have a better chance of being successful and contributing as taxpayers. Please vote in favor of SB796.

Here are the folks we want to reach out to. Pick a few to call or call all of them.
