Here is what you can say on the call:

  • Tell them your name and where you live. (If you are a constituent of the legislator you are calling, be sure to tell them that)
  • I am calling to express my support for the Supported Decision-Making legislation: H. 4349/S.2490.
  • SDM is important to me because… (Here you can explain who you are and why decision-making for people with disabilities is important to you. Are you a person who uses SDM? Do you have a loved one who uses SDM or would like to? etc.)
  • This bill will save money by reducing court costs!
