To get the absolute latest calls to action visit the home page – they are all there.
In 2017, even before the inauguration or the Women’s Marches in DC and all over the country, our voices were needed to speak up and speak out, opposing numerous actions being taken by the new 115th Congress. This need continues.
As we move through the legislative process at the state level, our voices are needed to support and oppose state legislation. A phone call is the best way to make your voice heard at the state level, but, if you aren’t comfortable making a call, an email is also a direct correspondence. Social media and petitions don’t have as much impact as direct contact when it comes to addressing specific legislation.
We must speak up and speak out NOW. We can’t wait.
How? What can you do? Contact your own legislator. If the issue is a local issue, contact your selectmen/women or councilor. If it’s a state issue, contact your state legislator. If it’s a national (congressional) issue contact your congressman/woman and both senators representing your state.
