Hello. My name is [NAME] and I am calling from [CITY/TOWN].I would like to encourage the Assemblymember to vote in support of AJR 32, which encourages and supports the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh’s continuing efforts to develop as a free and independent nation on Monday, May 5th.
Adoption of AJR 32 would be a proper way to validate the spirit of self-determination within the Armenian people, a spirit which led to freedom for all people who had been subjugated for 70 years by the Soviet Union, a spirit which was at the core of the birth of our nation in 1776. As representatives of the people, our state legislature should embrace the acts of courage by thousands of Californians who risked their lives for the sake of freedom by supporting AJR 32.
Thank you for your consideration of my request.
