COMMIT TO PRAY

Pray and seek the face of God.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Proverbs 21:1
The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

1 Timothy 2:1-3
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
EDMUND BURKE

“Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.”
RONALD REAGAN

CONTACT AND CONNECT

Write and call our elected officials.

What can you do today? Contact both your NY State Senator and Assembly member to ask them to oppose the medical legislation bills that remove parental rights:

Find your New State Senator: www.nysenate.gov/find-my-senator
Find your New York Assembly member: nyassembly.gov/mem/search

When you call your representative, identify yourself as a constituent and say you’d like to share your thoughts about bills that are likely to come for a vote this legislative session (January-June 2020). You do not need to say what party you belong to or who you voted for. You can ask to speak with the representative or their chief of staff directly but, most likely, you will be encouraged to leave your message with the staffer or perhaps a legislative director.

SAMPLE SCRIPT
You can simply say, “Hi, my name is __________ and I am a constituent. I am calling to ask Senator/Assembly member __________ to oppose Bill No. _______, which would _______________________________.” Make sure any language used is non-offensive and speaks from your heart as a parent and citizen. And then share your address. That’s it. It’s that simple.

You may make individual calls about each bill you oppose or you can make one call and talk about them as a whole.

If you have time, please consider following up with a heartfelt letter. Personal letters are more meaningful than generic ones, but any communication is better than silence.

After you contact your Senator and Assembly member, please reach out to the leadership in Albany, starting with Governor Cuomo.

Thank you for working to protect our children, our beautiful state, and our treasured democracy.

REACHING OUR COMMUNITY

This level of commitment is about reaching our community. As leaders in our community, we can start with the people we worship with, serve with, live next to, work with, and do life with. This starts with simply using our influence to educate and impact people through the normal pathways that already exist.

Step 1: Our Church
A first step involves providing information and action steps in our own church bulletins, Sunday announcements, church email strings, and church social media platforms. (Including paid ads or content to reach outside our church.) This is the low hanging fruit of our influence.

Step 2: Our Neighborhood
A second step to this level is to engage those in our neighborhood and community by text, personal social media accounts, or neighborhood meetings. This is simply speaking as a parent to the heart of other concerned parents by bringing awareness and providing hope through opportunity.

Step 3: Our Community
A third step involves engaging the important public forums in our community such as the School Board or writing well-crafted letters to the Democrat and Chronicle. In all of these steps, it is the goal to connect as parents with other parents and allow them to see and recognize the danger of losing parental choice and providing a way to do something useful.
