Cheat Sheet: Contacting People Who Run Your Government

Those people in Washington DC need to hear from you. Every day, their attention is taken up by billionaires, lobbyists (oil? coal? big pharma? you bet!), loudmouthed Fox hosts, celebrities, and Twitter posters. But YOU are who they are representing.

Together, our voices can make sure that the people are represented, and that our officials have to account for their votes. This is immensely powerful. Please become a part of it.

Make your government listen. Contact them with great frequency, and tell them what you want. Look through other posts on this website for tools that will help you automate your outreach. But this page gives you simple contact information, for when you just need it, fast.
