Start a Conversation With a Staffer

Please log your calls here: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

It's Friday on an April Recess, and the phone lines are more open. Pick one issue you feel most strongly about (e.g., budget, science, environment, Russia's potential involvement in elections, etc.), and call your representatives to tell them you're still committed to this and you want them to support it. Ask the staffer what their PLAN is on this issue.  And - maybe thank the staffer for their time answering calls.
