Default How To Write To Congress

I've used all these tips and have been very suprised with the responses I get. When I first started writing to my senators I expected form replies, but I have found that the more specific I make my letter the more specific the response is.
The Consumerist had a good article on how to write to congress which I felt needed to be shared with the rest of you...

Question LETTER TO CONGRESSMEN - template??

Can anyone frame a good letter indicating the current scenario & the efforts of IV and how the whole issue is messing people's lives.
This can be short adding to it will be our personal details and our matter
Please respond if any of the core members have a template ready for us to mail to our congressmen ..

ALSO.. IF PEOPLE HAVE CONTACTED CONGRESSMEN / RECEIVED REPLIES .. PLEASE INFORM OTHERS.. WE NEED NAMES OF CONGRESSMEN WHO ARE ACTIVE AND RESPONDING ..
THIS WILL ENCOURAGE MANY OTHERS .. PLEASE DONT PROVIDE CONTACT INFO.. JUST NAMES WILL DO

Question Letter draft

Can you post the contents of your letter so people can follow suit..
Most of us are not good at framing letters / may even miss points to educate the coongressmen
PLEASE PEOPLE WHOA RE READING .. PLEASE INDICATE IN POINTS WHAT YOU MENTIONED TO THE CONGRESSMEN AND WHAT ALL YOU TOUCHED UPON TO WIN HIS CONFIDENCE
THIS WILL HELP A LOT AND PEOPLE CAN GAIN A LOT OF IDEAS FROM VARIOUS REPLIES..!
Thanks

Default State Chapters

Contact your state chapter leaders, they will be able to help you with this

Normally, information like this won't be posted in a public forum. Please also don't post information of exactly who you have spoken to, this will trigger phone calls, faxes and visits in opposition.

Absolutely!

Guys n gals plz do not post the names of the lawmakers you contact.

Also, recent studies point to the fact that the most effective method to contact lawmakers is a face-to-face meeting or calling them, writing to them is ok but not the most effective way.

Its ok, you have the best of intentions, it is unfortunate that we have to do things this way, but we don't want to shoot ourselves in the foot!

I do encourage you join the state chapters still. A lot of the grass roots local activism takes place on this level. You'll be able to get invaluable advice precisely about this type of thing. Most of us old dogs there have visited many lawmakers over the time and can help you out.

If you don't know your state chapter info, the best place to start is in the State Chapter forum. Start making a ruckus on there and we'll find you

We are trying to collate State Chapter info into a more coherent form soon.
