Take Action

Support Iran Talks Extension

We are grateful for the “real and substantial progress” negotiators have made toward preventing a nuclear-armed Iran. Although negotiators fell short of the comprehensive deal, the talks are making progress.

Take Action

Lobby in Person

Congressional staffers agree that lobbying in person is the most effective way to influence your member of Congress, whether at home or in DC.

Learn how to lobby in person and request a lobby training.

Work with Groups

Groups and coalitions can have a significant effect on members of Congress. Join or start a group in your area -- or help multiple groups work together to effect change.

Learn how to connect your group with Washington.

Speak through the Media

Local papers are major resources for congressional offices working to stay in touch with their districts. Naming your member of Congress in a local paper almost guarantees that they will read your position.

Learn how to write an effective letter to the editor.

Send a Message

Call or email your member of Congress to address emerging issues and to take action quickly. Personalize your message by telling the office how legislation will affect you and your community.
