Contact Your Representatives
Facebook likes and Twitter retweets alone can’t create the change you want to see. Calling your federal, state, and local elected leaders takes less than a minute and is the most effective way to have your voice heard.

Tips for Calling
Be respectful. You’ll be speaking to a staffer. They aren’t looking to challenge you and you should treat them with the same respect you expect from them.
Give your name, city, and zip code, and say “I don’t need a response.” This way, they can quickly confirm you are a constituent, and that they can tally you down without taking the time to input you into a response database. Your tally will not be marked down unless you can rattle off a city and zip from the state, or are calling from an in-state area code.
State the issue, state your position. Not sure what to say? Visit 5calls.org to view the issues and sample scripts.
