Sample script:

Hello, my name is [your name], and I am calling today to urge [U.S. Representative name] to support H.R. 3938, also called the Support UNFPA Funding Act. While critics say this bill would only fund abortion worldwide, the truth is The United Nations Population Fund is a humanitarian aid group that helps vulnerable populations receive sexual, reproductive, and maternal care. This bill, if passed, would help to end gender-based violence and decrease the maternal mortality rate worldwide. Thank you for your consideration of this important piece of legislation.

What is JCJ advocating for?

In Judaism, a pregnant person’s life and physical, mental, and emotional health is a top priority. Therefore, in following Jewish law, we must put in effort for these protections, and the Support UNFPA Funding Act would aid in this effort.

What is the United Nations Population Fund?

The motto of the United Nations Population Fund is “Ensuring rights and choices for all.”  The UNFPA’s mission is to ensure that adults and children of all genders can access high-quality sexual and reproductive health services.

The UNFPA works in services such as:

  • Sexual and reproductive health
  • Adolescent health
  • Human rights and gender equality
  • Population issues such as census
  • Climate change

More services are listed under the “What We Do” section of unfpa.org.

The Jewish Center for Justice supports aid to this critical United Nations organization through H.R. 3938, a bill that would support the UNFPA’s core functions for the next five fiscal years.
