** Please note: We understand the biggest impact comes when constituents write from the heart. The below email is an example email you can use to cut and paste to make things easier for those who wish to support these bills, but we encourage you to construct your message with your own personal story or your own thoughts and feelings on these bills and write why this is important to you.
Hello, my name is XXXXXX and I am a resident of (location). I am emailing to request that the Senate Committee on Labor and Regulatory Reform vote YES (enter Senate bill numbers you support).
As a Wisconsinite, I am calling on those who have been elected to uphold our rights as citizens and step in with regards to vaccinations for COVID-19. The above bills reduce barriers to the lives of everyday Wisconsinites, in order for them to put food on their tables and roofs over their children’s heads.
It is time we unite across our state and country to push back against the aggressive lobbying efforts by the vaccine industry and by medical trade organizations whose interest and positions are of those that would increase their profits.
We simply cannot stand by idly, while our rights are trampled, employees are terminated, and lives are destroyed over policies for a medical procedure that carries risks, including death, of which have zero liability by the manufacturers.
Please vote yes on these three bills.
