Lobbying 101 and Organizing to Fight for your Rights

By Autism Action Network

Please join us at a series of Lobbying 101 sessions across the New York to learn what you can do to fight the unprecedented assault on your right to decide what is injected in your children’s bodies. These meeting will not only inform you, but will also connect you with a team of fellow constituents to take your concerns directly into the offices of your legislators.

They need to hear from you. The other side has lots of money. They do not have informed and determined voters. We do, and we have to use that advantage if we are going to protect our rights and our children. 

The sessions will be guided by John Gilmore of the Autism Action Network and Rita Palma of My Kids My Choice, both have more than ten years of legislative experience fighting to protect our rights here in New York.

Please know who your State Senator and Assembly member are. You can look them up here:
