2. When someone answers, feel free to use your own words or follow this short script:
"Hi, my name is YOUR NAME. I'm calling from YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD to urge Speaker Johnson to please support bill number 936, councilmember Rosenthal's bill that would require that plastic straws and stirrers only be handed out upon request and not automatically be given to people. This is important to me because I am very worried about our growing plastic pollution crisis which is threatening our oceans and wildlife and also all our health."

4. Once you've hung up, please take a moment to fill out the form on the right to let us know how your call went. A very important step!
Thank you so much for helping to stem the tide of plastic pollution in NYC and beyond.
