Today’s Action: Schedule a meeting with your reps…it’s Congressional recess!

Our Members of Congress have left Washington D.C. and are now at home in-state (unless Ted Cruz flew to Cancun again…) It’s Congressional recess, and our best chance to connect and push on the topics we need to see move forward!

This week, it’s vital we hit up our MoC’s on major issues that need a little more support to cross the finish line. So every day, we’ll be featuring a different way to get your MoC’s attention! Starting with…

Schedule a meeting with your Members of Congress!

The traditional route hasn’t gone away, even with the pandemic, as many MoC’s now hold virtual meeting options. A personal conversation is one of the best ways to convince your MoC’s just how big the demand for any given topic is. Know that you might end up meeting with a member of their staff – and that’s good, too!

  • Schedule a meeting. Call or email your MoC’s offices (or check their website for meeting request submission forms, enter your address to pull up your rep’s website) for meeting availability. Expect anywhere between 5-15 minutes if you are confirmed.
  • Plan your asks. Choose 1-3 topics to speak passionately on, and make sure your calls-to-action are crystal clear (ex: “I want you to put pressure on your colleagues to abolish the filibuster.”) We suggest the following topics:
  • Put it in writing. Keep it to 1-2 pages, and deliver it to your MoC or their staff at the end of your meeting (or via email, if virtual). Don’t depend on their note-taking!
  • Share on social media. Snap a photo if you can, and share a summary of your meeting and asks on social media…be sure to tag your rep!

Put in your requests to meet with your MoC’s today! But in case you don’t get scheduled, we’ll see you tomorrow for your planning your next approach to getting their attention.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to arrest Donald Trump, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
