In a press conference held Saturday, Representative Sandra Hollins said, “I need people at the capitol pushing with me. I’ve always said I’m willing to push but I need people behind me pushing also…, we need the public out there pushing with us, making those phone calls and calling their elected officials and educating them on why certain policies are more important or how certain policies may have an impact on communities of color.”
Utah legislators need to hear from their constituents to understand what support they have in pushing for and supporting policy changes at the state level. Make your voice heard by contacting your state legislator today using our simple email form below.
- Let legislators know that you support the message of the Black Lives Matter movement and that you want to see meaningful action to make changes in our state that positively impact communities of color.
- Inform legislators as to why supporting this cause is an important step towards creating changes to eradicate systemic race-based injustice.
- Tell legislators about your personal experiences with systemic racism and how inequality has affected you and/or the people in your community.
- Ask your legislator how they plan to affect change for people of color, and specifically black people, in Utah.
