NYVIC (New Yorkers for Vaccination Information and Choice)


What You Can Do

1)  If you don't know who your representatives are, you can check our links to find government officials and legislation status, or call the League of Women Voters (N.Y.C. office: 212-674-8484) in your area.

2)  Call or e-mail your representatives' local offices and request copies of the bills. This shows your awareness and concern. You can ask for up to 10 copies.

3)  Develop your response to these bills. Be specific about what is and is not representative of your values and potentially antagonistic to our rights, etc. State if you want the bills scrapped and/or suggest alternative wording to illuminate and accurately define the aspects of concern. Whether you call or write, ask hard questions (like ones which need to be researched) so that you don't get "generic" responses or form letters.

4)  Ask for timely appointments to meet with reps or their aids. Go alone or with others. Bring literature.

5)  Open & maintain a dialogue. Request updates as they happen. Call periodically to track the progress.

6)  Copy, disseminate and post this information sheet and the bills. Get the word out.

7)  Consider sending us copies of your letters and their responses.

8)  Meet with us in Manhattan (call 212-473-8201) and/or organize in your area to exchange ideas and to plan and coordinate actions.

Thank you!
