Making your Voice Count

Posted by Emily Crawford on March 01, 2016 at 11:28 AM

Sometimes do you feel like your voice doesn’t count?

When we see the Cervical Cancer Prevention Act lingering too long in the Senate and when we see legislators pass on discussing how we can improve the lives of young people through medically accurate sex education, we sometimes get discouraged too.

Maybe my voice alone could get ignore, but our voices together will not be ignored.

Bee Day 2015

If you haven't already, RSVP here and join us at Bee Day, Tell Them’s annual lobby day, and believe with us in the power of people to make a difference!

On March 16 about 200 people like you will let legislators know we care about the health, economic well-being and rights of South Carolina’s women, girls and families. On Bee Day we’ll have a series of advocacy stations where experienced advocates will walk you through:

  • How to email your legislator;
  • How to engage on social media with your legislator;
  • How to write your legislator a letter;
  • How to call your legislator; and
  • How to talk with your legislator in person.

You’ll be able to drop by Marriott Columbia any time between 9am – 3pm (and you might want to check the full agenda to join us for pictures on the State House steps, press conference, for a group introduction in the House floor, and to eat lunch with legislators) to participate in one or all of these advocacy activities.

Together, our voices on advancing women’s health will  be heard.

Thank you for joining us and stay tuned for next week’s message where we’ll provide a full run down of what to expect on Bee Day!

If you’d like to invite your friends to join you, send them this link.
