Enlist support from other Kentuckians!

 

Multiply your impact by recruiting others contact their legislators.  Here are some ideas:

  • Contact other parents who have had (or are having) this experience. Strategize with these friends and acquaintances using weekly morning teas or evening desserts. These are effective and fun!

  • Make an appointment for you and other like-minded individuals to visit your representatives. The more people (including parents, babies, and young children), the better! (Most Legislators want to have a “family friendly” reputation).
    Use the guidelines given for contacting your legislator on the previous page.

  • Have friends and relatives call Kentucky's toll-free “Legislative Message Line” (1-800-372-7181) to leave a message for their legislator, the House or Senate leaders, or members of a specific committee, asking for their support for expanded family friendly jury duty legislation.

  • Give information about this Kentucky's family friendly jury duty initiatives to churches and groups to which you belong. (This increases your impact exponentially!)

  • Enlist the support of breastfeeding groups (such as La Leche League, etc.) which add legitimacy to this cause and aids our efforts to attract a legislator’s attention and support.

Remember, you don’t have to be a professional lobbyist to have an impact,
only a concerned citizen!!
