All information will be kept confidential; we’ll contact you if we’d like to follow up or publicize your story.

Make NYS Healthy Workplace Bill a Law in 2017 Campaign
Sent: Wednesday, January 25, 2017 6:15 PM, to 1016 signatories of Petition 

Notice for new petition signers and a reminder for veterans about Torii Bottomley’s special photo
project supporting NY Healthy Workplace Bill: FACE WORKPLACEBULLYING – Inside Out Project

Here is the link to her Boston/MASS project that got rave reviews and startling attention.

Torii can be reached on Facebook here.

Also, a link to a dated YouTube broadcast. The plans is to get back in touch with the news organization who taped this. More being done to make new contacts.

There are efforts in the works to generate more media attention like this but not necessarily with a diversity of mugs. More people are needed to go public, that is, be interviewed for news stories. More about this later. Even better is sending in a personal statement to NYHWA that will make sure it’s delivered to NYS elected officials:

Send NYHWA Your Personal Account of Workplace Bullying

From NYHWA: “We once again will are seeking personal accounts from individuals who have experienced workplace bullying. We intend to distribute accounts that we receive to all 213 state legislators at all three of our lobby day events. Personal accounts are very helpful to show the range of tactics, employer responses and health issues that employees encounter when they are targeted in the workplace.

Personal accounts are most effective when they are no longer than 2 pages long and get to the heart of the matter. Accounts should state what happened, how the abusive behavior affected you, the employment conditions during the period you incurred the abuse and also the one’s current employment situation.”

“If you are willing to write your personal account and are willing to identify yourself, we ask if you can look up who your state Senator and Assembly member are. We will personally hand deliver 213 copies

of your personal account the entire membership of the NYS legislature and inform those that you are a constituent of know that you live in their district.

Personal accounts from constituents are also extremely useful as legislators have a personal investment to address concerns of those they represent. Personal accounts can be anonymous as well.”

“Please use the following links to verify who your State Assembly member and Senator are and pass them along to us with your personal account.”

To verify who your NYS Assemblymember is, complete the form found at this link. To verify who your NYS Senator is, complete the form found at this link.

Please send your personal accounts to or via postal mail to:
5500 N. Bailey Avenue, #43
Buffalo, NY 14214
