Dear Senator(s) [name of State Senator(s)],
As a student, and as an Oregonian, I would like to request that you strongly consider supporting SB-421: a bill that would create a statewide student collaborative focused on racial justice and equity. Passage of this bill and the creation of this collaborative would support youth leaders, particularly youth who have been historically underserved and under-represented, in participating in the policy-making process at the state level.
Students need to have a voice in the issues that affect their lives–by supporting this bill, you show us that you know our input is meaningful and important.
Thank you for your service to our state, and for your commitment to ensuring that Oregon continues to work towards being a just and equitable place to live for all its residents.
[Your School, and Freshman/Sophomore/Junior/Senior]
[Your city/state/zip (where you live)]
