Once upon a time, and not so very long ago, the website of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms did not include a feature that allowed voters to communicate directly with elected officials. In those days, when we wanted to encourage voters to e-mail their state legislators in opposition to same-sex “marriage,” we had to ask a national organization to place an action alert on its website. Otherwise, all we could do was ask voters to write or call their elected officials and hope for the best.
Thankfully, through the provision of the Lord and the generosity of our donors, we were able to upgrade our website some years ago. AlbanyUpdate.com now includes an important feature known as the Legislative Action Center. Voters who click on the Legislative Action Center can view and act upon a series of action alerts. Typically, our action alerts provide background information on a given issue and invite voters to e-mail their state legislators about that issue. (Sometimes, our action alerts ask voters to contact other elected officials, such as members of Congress or the Governor of New York.) When a voter types in his or her address, our system locates that voter’s elected officials. The voter is then offered a pre-written message that can be edited, personalized, and e-mailed directly to those elected officials.
New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms is thankful for our Legislative Action Center. The Center offers Christian New Yorkers and our allies a user-friendly, time-saving way to engage their elected officials on matters of concern. At present, the Legislative Action Center contains timely action alerts on diverse matters like COVID-19 vaccination mandates, physician-assisted suicide, socialized medicine, pro-life pregnancy centers, sex education in schools, and the legalization of prostitution.
To work effectively, the Legislative Action Center only needs one thing: You. Please check out the Legislative Action Center today, and visit it regularly to communicate with your elected officials and have a godly influence on state government.
