Local presidents and chapter chairs, in case you missed the SRP Leaders Townhall Event, here is the link to download the legislative activism toolkit created just for you, NYSUT local SRP leaders: nysut.cc/SRPActivism. (Requires leader login.)
There you will find toolkit materials including:
- The PowerPoint presentation, “10-Minute Meeting: Legislative Activism for SRPs” and Talking Points;
- 2021 Legislative Talking Points;
- Quick One-to One Conversation Scripts;
- Tell Our Stories, worksheet, and a link to share your story with us;
- Links to the NYSUT Member Action Center; and
- And a link for information about and registration for SRP Lobby Day events May 3-5, 2021.
During your 10-minute meetings and one-to-one conversations remember to ask your members to sign up for SRP Lobby Day and sign up for the NYSUT Member Action Center (MAC).
Will you take a moment to email us a few details of how your meeting went? Let us know the date of your meeting and how you used the toolkit. Or include details about your one-to-one conversations with your members in support of our legislative activism. Please remember to include a short summary, which includes the materials you used and how you used them.
As a thank you for your continued union advocacy, everyone who sends a response detailing their use of toolkit materials will receive a small SRP-centric thank you packet, including an SRP lanyard and will be entered in a raffle to win a prize.
The deadline to enter is May 3, 2021.
