How to express your concerns to Congress

Act now  and then do it again, call your Congress persons, we the people must be strong and loud in expressing our concerns for the degradation of our national values, laws, security, environment. health and justice. 

How do you call your congressman?

Call congressional offices directly or through the switchboard. If you do not have the direct number, you can reach US representatives by calling 202-225-3121, and US senators by calling 202-224-3121. Ask the operator to connect you to the individual office.

Will it matter? Here an a quote from The New Yorker, What Calling Congress Achieves?

"For constituent activity to have more immediate effects on the actions of lawmakers, however, other conditions—most of them necessary, none of them necessarily sufficient—must apply. Broadly speaking, these include a huge quantity of people acting in concert, an unusually high pitch of passion, a specific countervailing vision, and consistent press coverage unfavorable to sitting politicians. Together, these can create the most potent condition of all: the possibility (or, at any rate, the fear) that the collective restiveness could jeopardize reëlection.

Such conditions do not emerge very often in American politics, but, when they do, pundits routinely describe them with recourse to the metaphor of a flood. Calls pour in; dams threaten to burst; legislators are deluged, inundated, swamped. “It’s kind of like water flowing down into a dam,” Fitch said. “If a hundred cubic feet of water flows down over a period of three weeks, it’s not going to put pressure on the dam. But if a hundred cubic feet of water flows down in three minutes, something’s going to give.March 6, 2017 Kahtyn Schultz
