If your member of congress isn’t planning on holding any public events, it’s still important for them to hear from you.

Call them up to set up an in-person meeting at their district office, or pull together an “empty chair” town hall event if they refuse to meet with you--and make sure to register your event on the map. For some tips on how to pin down your "missing" member of congress, check out this guide from Indivisible Project.

+ PROTECTING IMMIGRANTS

Immigrants and refugees have been the first targets of the new administration and Congress has not moved to stop the attacks and defend our nation’s promise as a beacon of hope for the world. Our partners at One America and the Unitarian Universalist church have some tips to help you tell your member of Congress you want to see them protect immigrants and refugees, regardless of their religion.

+ WE NEED HEALTHCARE

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) allowed 22 million Americans to access the health care they need, and reduced the burden on our hospitals and care facilities that uninsured, emergency visits cause. Let your member of Congress know you stand with the majority of citizens, who want to protect this vital program from repeal. Visit our partners MomsRising and the League of Women Voters to learn how to be an awesome healthcare advocate, and receive a storybook to share with your Representatives.

+ MY BODY, MY RIGHTS

Access to reproductive health care is a basic right for over half the population to care for their bodies. Tell your member of Congress we will not go back to a time when the government made decisions about women’s reproductive futures and limited our access to birth control, STD testing and lifesaving, preventive cancer screenings. Our partner Planned Parenthood has resources to help you brush up on the facts.

+ REDUCING GUN VIOLENCE

When the NRA and the gun manufacturers’ lobby write our government policy, public safety is compromised. Our partners Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, and States United to Prevent Gun Violence have resources to help you speak to your member of Congress about the need for comprehensive background checks on all gun sales, and key issues like guns and domestic violence, guns in schools and on college campuses, and dangerous changes to concealed carry laws and Stand Your Ground.

+ PROTECTING THE LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY

Our partner Human Rights Campaign has created a state equality index that you can use to evaluate your state’s laws and policies that affect LGBTQIA+ people. Trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) people are at particularly high risk right now, from the wave of transphobic “Bathroom Bills” we’ve seen introduced to the disproportionately high rate of homelessness that TGNC experience. Our partner the Transgender Law Center has resources on these topics and more. Sign their 2017 pledge of resistance here.
