Advocacy Matters – Round 2

We would like to thank all of our supporters for the great strides we’ve made together helping our legislators and the Governor’s office see the value of Community Dispute Resolution Centers!

With budget negotiations still in full swing, there is still more we can ensure a $1 million legislative add in 2015’s fiscal year.

Here are the three-step instructions we have heard could make a difference:


  1. Find the Albany office phone number for your Assemblymember and Senator here:

  1. Call each office and leave a message using the script below.

“Hi, my name is _____, and I live in Senator/Assemblymember ____’s district. I am calling in support of the Community Dispute Resolution Centers and want to ask the Senator/Assemblymember to include the $1 million legislative add for the CDRCs in the final State Budget.”


  1. Email Alison Ritchie ( at NYSDRA with the names of the legislators you called so we can track the contacts made.
