The conversation is lively, the pens are colorful and there's plenty of tasty treats! We'll provide the postcards, stamps, materials, and refreshments. All you need to do is show up ready to write!

Make your voice heard again and again.

“I want you to make this a part of your new daily routine: Call Congress every single day. Brush your teeth, make the coffee, walk the dog and call Congress.” – Michael Moore, Filmmaker

And, here in North Carolina, please add the N.C. General Assembly to your list of daily calls. We might not win every time, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stop. Keep calling.

When attempting to contact elected officials, remember to start with those who represent you first. The power of hearing from a constituent is always more powerful than hearing from someone outside of the area they represent. Below are links to access members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, links for N.C. House and N.C. Senate members, as well as a handy “Who Represents Me?” feature:
