Contact Your Representatives

Let your city, county, state, or federal representatives know how you feel about an issue – there’s no way they can abide by your wishes if you don’t contact them. You may think, “Gee, I’m only one of 300 million, what difference can I make?” As it turns out: A LOT. Because not very people do take the time and effort to contact their leaders, when you do, your voice effectively counts for the thousands of people who don’t exercise their democratic option of making themselves heard.

It’s your right to express yourself and to state your opinion, and millions of people have died fighting for that right. Use it.

When you do contact your representatives, whether it be by email, telephone, or written missive, always be cordial and be respectful. Be constructive and work with your representative. You are much more likely to be heard if you’ll work with your representative rather than criticizing her or him.
