Thank your Reps for a Year of Hard Work

As the year draws to a close, take a moment to reach out to your Senators and Congressional representatives to thank them for fighting for us all year long. Our Members of Congress aren't perfect—no one is—but they have been very receptive to us, their constituents/bosses. It’s been a long year, and despite the exhaustion that must come from working every day in the hostile environment of the Trump administration, our representatives have been exemplary. Call them to let them know that they are appreciated, and boost their spirits for what may come in 2019!

Action: Thank Murray, Cantwell, Jayapal, and/or Smith!
