With Advocacy Day coming up fast now is the time to get ready to talk to legislators, even if you’re not making the trip to Albany!
Participate in “Virtual Advocacy Day” by planning to speak up by phone and through social media on Wednesday, March 2 – Library Advocacy Day in Albany.
Step 1: Get up to speed on the issues:
- Budget Talking Points (includes information on the push for more construction aid for our region!)
- Advocacy Day Briefing from MHLS (video)
Step 2: Get the word out on March 2 and help others do the same!:
- By Phone – call the Albany Office of your State Senator and Assemblyperson and lend your support to the advocates in Albany on March 2
- Through Social Media – use the New York Library Association’s Virtual Advocacy Day Activities support page to use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get the word out about #NYLALAD16 Don’t forget to tag your legislators so they can see the level of interest among their constituents when it comes to supporting libraries!
