This year we have seen an increased not only in membership but also in the public's interest in what is going on at our State Capitol. We have had a busy first half of session and now that budget negotiations are winding down we are regrouping and strategizing how we will move our priority issues before session ends.

Lucky for us we have launched a new partnership with Voices a political advocacy app that shares action alerts from the League directly to your phone. These action alerts will allow you to quickly call, email, or tweet at your legislator with the touch of a button. The alert will provide you with a sample script, email, or tweet and give you the power to lobby on these issues quickly and easily.

You can download the app on your phone using this link: https://tryvoices.com/lwvnys Or search "Voices: Political Advocacy" in the Apple App Store or Google Play on your cell phone.

If you have questions please contact Jennifer in our office at Jennifer@lwvny.org.
