There will be an important meeting on Wednesday, March 6 at 11 am at the offices of State Sen. John Brooks of the 8th State Senate District to ask him to vote “no” on Senate Bill S2994, Sen. Brad Hoylman’s bill to eliminate religious exemptions from vaccine mandates to attend school in New York.
5550 Merrick Rd.
Senator Brooks was one of 3 “No” votes against our bill (S6141d) out of 19 committee members when it came up for a vote in the Senate Education Committee in the last legislative session. S6141d would have eliminated school district authority to pass judgment on whether applicants for religious exemptions have “genuine and sincere” religious beliefs. Brooks voted to keep in place the current system of religious interrogations and tribunals operated by many school districts.
Please bring a letter asking Senator Brooks to oppose Senate Bill S2994. Be polite. Let him know how it will repealing religious exemptions would affect your family. Do not get into the health and safety issues in this letter.
