It's a vexing time for those of us who believe in the right of artists, intellectuals and ordinary, affronted citizens to push boundaries and take risks and so, at times, to change the way we see the world. There's nothing to be done but to go on restating the importance of this kind of courage ….”
— Salman Rushdie   
  How will your Members of Congress know what you want if you don't tell them?
• BE SPECIFIC: Time-limited and precise
•  BE STRATEGIC: You know what it will accomplish
• BE SEEABLE: You can see when they respond

Members of Congress care about getting re-elected. Contact ONLY elected officials who represent you. You don't want to dilute the power of actual constituents! Be sure to tell Members of Congress when you agree with their positions and votes.
Contact YOUR elected officials here.
