Contacting your congressional district’s respective representative is one of the best ways to make your voice heard in our republic, but it can also be an extremely daunting task. The good news is that only a few simple steps are required to get in touch with the congressmen and congresswomen that represent you on Capitol Hill.
Here is how to find your senator(s):
- Visit www.senate.gov/senators/contact
- Select your state on the drop-down bar
Here is how to find your representatives in the House:
- Visit www.house.gov/representatives/find
- Enter your zip code in the text box
Once you have discovered how to get in touch with your representatives, what do you say? We have created a script that you can utilize when calling your congressmen/women:
“Hello, my name is ____ and I am calling as a constituent of **insert congressman/woman**. I am contacting you on behalf of the people you represent in **insert state name**. I ask that you support legislation that aids immigrants and refugees like the BRIDGE Act and you continue to work to reform the statutes set forth by President Trump in his executive order. Thank you for your time.”
Since our representatives have so many issues to cover and do not have the time to personally take calls from their constituents, their staffers are the ones that will take your call. After hearing what you’ve expressed in the above script, they will inform you that they will record and pass it along to your representative.
It’s as simple as that! Go make your voice heard and contact your representatives in solidarity with immigrants and refugees!
