Sample call / email script:
Hello. My name is [YOUR NAME], and I am calling to urge Assembly Member [NAME] to support Assembly Constitutional Amendment 4. As a member of the Jewish Center for Justice community, I believe that the ability to vote is one of the most essential rights of any thriving democracy. ACA 4 would restore the right to vote to individuals incarcerated in county prisons and convicted of felonies. ACA 4 helps create a healthier democracy in which more American voices are heard. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
The Jewish Center for Justice is mobilizing Jewish communities and pro-democracy people of faith in support of Assembly Constitutional Amendment 4, which would allow those convicted of felonies and serving in prison to be able to have their voting rights restored. As a Jewish community, we have long supported the bills and measures aimed at expanding (and not limiting) the right to vote, from our ancient texts, which called for the need for every voice to be heard and counted in the community to our modern belief that societies in which all are granted the unobstructed right to vote are safer for all. If passed, ACA 4 would:
- Restore the right to vote to individuals convicted of felonies
- Restore the right to vote to individuals incarcerated in county prisons.
- Help shape a prison system that truly rehabilitates incarcerated individuals while preparing them to re-enter society.
Take ACTION by contacting your State Senator and Assembly Member to urge them to support this important California Constitutional Amendment.
