4. Let us know that you called! Help us measure our national impact by taking a second after your phone call to let us know you took action. Indicate if you left a voicemail or spoke to a staffer, and let us know how the conversation went!

  • Don't get worry about getting bogged down in the details. Just showing your support for the issue has a big impact

  • Make sure to clearly state your name and that you are one of their constituents
