Thirty-Five States Called into Action Jordan Sillars January 7, 2014 Anne Reiner Listen up, freedom fighters! It’s 2014, it’s January, and your state representatives are getting to work. Now is when the rubber hits the road! Thirty-five state legislatures will be in session this month. In the upcoming weeks, your state may decide to support or reject the COS application. So we need your help. This is your time to shine, because letters and phone calls to your state representatives have never been so important. If you live in these states we need your participation immediately: Alaska Arizona Colorado Delaware Georgia Hawaii Idaho Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Mississippi Missouri Nebraska New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Utah Vermont Virginia Washington West Virginia Wisconsin What you need to do now: Call or write a letter to your state representative. We have provided a sample letter and talking points to make this process easy and efficient for you. We can’t stress enough the importance of this simple task. But it doesn’t end there! We need to build our grassroots base to show your state legislators they have an army of supporters ready to back them up. So talk with your friends, family, and coworkers and tell them to sign up. Go to the Action Center and get connected with your state leadership. Or fill out your own leadership application! We need volunteers if we are going to make this project a success. The COS team is proud to stand beside you as we enter this historic year. Let’s get to work!
