HELLO, my name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [city, state].
I am calling to urge [Representative/Senator name] to make women’s equal representation in government a reality by supporting reforms like the [legislation] that would help more women and people of color be elected to office. Fair representation is critical for a strong democracy, because it helps ensure that every vote counts, all voices are heard, and everyone has an equal opportunity to serve in elected office.
I am counting on [Representative/Senator name] to take action on this issue. After all, women are 51% of your constituency.
Thank you for your time.
