Action Items To Oppose SB163 From Home Part 1

As an activist working from home, it’s easy to let the day escape you.

Remember:

  1. Schedule your day. Prioritize spiritual, family, etc. 
  2. Set healthy boundaries.
  3. Use a timer to avoid over or underachieving.
  4. Set time aside to take care of yourself.

We are waiting for SB163 to go to the House Health & Insurance Committee Hearing. By uniting, day by day we become stronger and can get more achieved to fight this bill. Let this energy rise and re-direct it toward authority and confidence. 

Educating these politicians is only half of the battle. 

The rest of the story is…

Advocacy! We must inspire others to advocate for themselves. There are several different ways to create a positive educational encounter with friends, family, or people in a position of authority. We desire to learn and there are specific actions that we can take to propel us in making these specific requests. 

Remember, that the most powerful trips we can PACK the House Gallery at Capitol are: 

  1. For the House Hearing 
  2. The second reading 
  3. The third reading. We should PACK the House gallery.

Please make every effort to be at the Capitol for those three events. 

Thank YOU all for your commitment to fight for bodily and medical autonomy in Colorado. We need YOU! 

Here’s what you can do from home: 

Email and call all Reps and Senators. Challenge them about the attempt to remove religious and personal exemptions. Ask them why they are changing them to a “non-medical” exemption. Remind them that the American Academy of Pediatrics’ number one goal is to remove “non-medical” exemptions. SB163 supports the AAP agenda. The AAP was a stakeholder in SB163, yet the people who utilize these exemptions were not involved in the stakeholder process. This is a conflict of interest that needs to be accounted for. Ask them what plans they have in place to ensure that the “non-medical” exemption will be protected. 

The AAP’s number one agenda item to remove non-medical exemptions.
