Proximity Twitter Power Hour
December 15, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Proximity bill which will ensure that incarcerated parents are placed in facilities close to their children was sent to Governor Cuomo and is awaiting his signature! Now is the time to let the Governor know how important this bill is to families. Please email the Governor and urge him to sign Proximity Bill A6710A and join our Proximity Power Hour.
Visit our Proximity Power Hour guide for sample tweets and images that you can post throughout the hour. If you are unable to Tweet with us live, you can schedule Tweets in advance or Tweet the Governor anytime over the next two days. Even one Tweet helps. Here are samples:
.@NYGovCuomo please sign #ProximityNow (A6710A) as a gift for the holidays to the many children whose parents are in NY State prisons. This bill brings incarcerated parents closer to home, making visiting easier and ensuring families can celebrate future holidays together.
.@NYGovCuomo Covid is a huge strain on children who worry about & miss their incarcerated parents. Visiting is hard enough without traveling 100+ miles. Please support children & families by signing #ProximityNow (A6710A) and bring incarcerated parents closer to home.
