Write or Call Your Member of Congress

Phone calls are the most effective way to contact your member of congress and they only take a few minutes.  Letters to MoCs are also great because:

  1. You have time to formulate your thoughts without feeling the pressure of doing it while talking to a person on the phone
  2. Your position on an issue is documented
  3. A staffer has to take time to respond to your letter
  4. The response to your letter gives you intel on your MoC's talking points for future reference
