TIPS FOR MAKING A TELEPHONE CALL

 

Tips on Telephoning Congress:

1. The phone numbers of the offices of your senators and representative are available on their websites.

2. You can also call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your senators' and/or representative's office.

3. Call a state or district office first.

4. Leave a voice mail if there is no answer. If the voicemail is full, press "O." This will typically take you to a receptionist who may be able to take your message or direct you to a voicemail that is not full.

5. Call the national office if you cannot get through or to see if you can get to a real person.

6. Remember that telephone calls are usually taken by a staff member, not the member of Congress. Ask to speak with the aide who handles the issue about which you wish to comment.

7. Be prepared to give your name and location. You may identify yourself as a constituent.

8. Tell the aide you would like to leave a brief message, such as: "Please tell Senator/Representative (Name) that I support/oppose (S.___/H.R.___)." Be specific.

9. You will also want to state reasons for your support or opposition to the bill.

10. Ask for your senators' or representative's position on the bill. You may also request a written response to your telephone call.

11. Use a script and keep your message brief, but specific.

TIPS FOR WRITING A LETTER / E-MAIL

Tips on Writing Congress:

A letter or email is the most popular choice of communication with a congressional office.

If you decide to write a letter or email, use this list of helpful suggestions to improve its effectiveness:

1. Your purpose for writing should be stated in the first paragraph of the letter.

2. If your letter pertains to a specific piece of legislation, identify it accordingly, e.g., House bill: (H. R. ____), Senate bill: (S.____).

3. Be courteous, to the point, and include key information

4. Use examples to support your position.

5. Address only one issue in each letter and, if possible, keep the letter to one page.

        - Hint: Sometimes letters are not opened immediately; if speed is important, use postcards or faxes.

TOWN HALLS

 

Activism Guide: How to Attend a Town Hall Meeting

What is a town hall meeting? Most Members of Congress hold "town hall" meetings a several times each year to meet with constituents and give updates from Washington, D.C. They are usually held in a public setting and are free to attend. Town halls provide fantastic opportunities to gain face-to-face access to your U.S. Senators or Representative while they are back in the district. Town hall meetings typically consist of two parts: your Member will speak for about 15-30 minutes about activities in Washington. Then, your Member will open the floor to questions from constituents. This is your opportunity to ask your Member about a particular immigration issue or piece of legislation. Read More
