What you can doOnce you’ve looked to see what’s happening in your state, your next step is clear: If there’s legislation listed, call your local legislators and tell them how you want them to vote on it. On the other hand, if there’s nothing listed, you can call your legislator and demand that they take action by authoring a bill.You can find the contact information for your local state legislators HERE.I encourage you to listen to your local community and learn what measures they have been advocating for to keep people safe. You could start by reaching out to your local NAACP or ACLU chapter, or look into these organizations that have been in this fight for a long time. Thank you for taking action.
