New York CALL your Reps Now! Do NOT Repeal Religious Exemption to Vaccination!

April 25, 2019 — Mayor de Blasio’s emergency targeting of unvaccinated Jews in Brooklyn is being used to help garner support for an unpopular bill in Albany. The bill is sponsored by Senator Hoylman and Assemblyman Dinowitz and aims to revoke the Religious Exemption to vaccination

The bill is S2994 – we need everyone in Albany to vote NO TO S2994 !!! Follow instructions below to contact your reps:

This is a well coordinated attack on Religious & Health Freedom in New York. But you are not helpless. You need to make sure Albany knows who you are and what your position is on this issue. The legislators are all home this week coming up. Get in touch with them at their local offices. Here is what you can do:

#1 – Contact your State Senator. Don’t know who that is? Find out here:

#2 – Contact your State Assemblyman. Don’t know who that is? Find out here:

Already contacted them? Do it AGAIN! You should contact them by phone, email and snail-mail. If you can’t do all three, do as much as you can. Here is a link to a letter that you can copy & paste and send to your officials:

After doing that contact all the Senators on the Health Committee. Find them here:

Start by calling Gustavo Rivera at 718-933-2034, email him at
grivera@nysenate.gov

When I called Senator Rivera the staffer I spoke with said they were getting a lot of calls against repealing the Religious Exemption, and that Rivera has not made up his mind yet. Keep calling!

Want to do more?!? I HOPE SO! Now you should email and call members of the Assembly Health Committee.

ASSEMBLYMEN/WOMEN on the Health Committee can be found here:

https://nyassembly.gov/comm/?id=19

And here is a great list of phone numbers for Democrats on the Assembly Health Committee. CALL ‘EM ALL!!!

Please do not call Richard Gottfried right now who heads the Assembly Health Committee. John Gilmore informed all of us that his phone was ringing off the hook and his office was unable to get much work done. Gottfried is a big supporter of ours so he doesn’t need the pressure. But it sure is good to know that Albany is hearing us very LOUD right now!
