ISSUE

Reports came out last week that the Governor is considering removing his statewide mask mandate. The data are clear – it’s too soon to do that without putting an undue risk on Texans’ health. Haven’t we already been through enough this year? When you call his office, tell the switchboard operator that you’d like to speak with a staffer about the mask mandate.

CALL

Call Governor Greg Abbott at 512-463-2000 and urge him to keep the mask mandate in Texas. You can say:

“Hi, I’m a constituent of Governor Abbott and I’m calling today to urge him to keep the mask mandate in place. Wearing a mask is such an easy step to help slow the spread, keep our businesses open, and keep Texans safe. By continuing to have a mask mandate, it sends a strong message to Texas that we aren’t out of the woods yet, and need our communities to work together to keep each other safe. {Tell your COVID story or how removing the mask mandate would personally impact you here.} Thanks so much. My zip code is _____.”
