Writing is an effective way to influence your representatives and other government officials. Here you will find postal addresses and suggested weekly topics, as well as sample letters and links to letter writing campaigns.

Write



Writing letters can be quick and easy. See samples here. For those who do not feel comfortable calling, writing allows you to formulate your thoughts in your own space and your own time. From the limited space on a postcard to the limitless space on stationary, take as much or as little time as you need to state your opinion.

You can write the President and Vice President if you have an issue with their opinions or decisions. Don’t hesitate to let them know what you think! Click here for their addresses.

Every Georgia citizen has the same two Senators, Johnny Isakson and David Perdue. Our representatives are proportioned by district. You can find out who represents the district you live in here. Make sure to write the correct Representative when writing about a specific issue. However, you can write to any representative, even if they are not in your district or state. For example, if any representative is sponsoring a bill you disagree with, contact them to express your displeasure.

We also provide information to write your Georgia state representatives and senators. These are the members of Georgia's state congress and are different from our national reprensentatives. Click here to determine who your representative and senator is, plus find writing campaigns and topics.

Occasionally there will be a need for public comments on a topic. We'll include the links to those in the Public Comments section.

Additionally, we let you know if there are other local issues that could use some attention here.

It's not all bad. Click here to see who you can write with a letter of thanks!

U.S. Writing Campaigns and Topics

1. Write to several members of Health and Human Services demanding they close the Homestead Child Detention Center. "Right now, there are over 2,000 child migrants -- many of whom have been separated from their families by deportation agents -- in a detention center in Homestead, Florida. These children have fled violence and poverty in Central America and are seeking asylum in the United States."

The two points to make are these:

"Reunite children with their sponsors as quickly as possible and end collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security that interfere with reunifications.

    Close the Homestead Temporary Shelter for unaccompanied children and stop using emergency influx facilities."

Sign the petition as well. And Share on Facebook and Twitter.

2. Send a letter to your Senator asking them to support the Military Justice Improvement Act. "Despite previous efforts to curb the scourge of sexual abuse in the military under the Obama administration, incidents have spiked dramatically since the Trump administration came into office. Between 2016 and 2018, reported sexual harassment and assault rose by an astounding 38%." Read more.

There is a petition you can also sign here.


3. Write a letter to your Representative in support of Rep. Mike Levin and the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, specifically to protext Title IX. Betsy DeVos is trying to rewrite the rules for victims of assault and rape in schools and colleges. "New rules written by DeVos would exempt much sexual harassment and assault from Title IX. For example, under DeVos’s new rules, schools and colleges would be prohibited from investigating many rapes that occur off campus, which is where most college students live. In addition, the definition of sexual harassment would be severely narrowed to cover only the most extreme and repeated conduct." Read more here. Here's a petition too.


4. No matter where you stand on impeachment of the current President, let your voice be heard. Write to your Senators and tell them what you, as their constituent, want them to do. There are compelling arguments on both sides. Here's a link to an argument for impeachement. Here is one against. Give them a read and see what you think. Then let your Senators know because they represent us and the President is our responsibility.


5. "H.R. 1046, Rep. Lloyd Doggett’s proposal, would force Big Pharma to make drugs more affordable while also protecting patients’ access to crucial medicines." Contact your Representative and ask them to support H.R. 1046.

Read about H.R.1046 here.


6. "Democrats in Congress introduced the BE HEARD Act which aims: “to close the loopholes in federal discrimination law that leave many domestic workers without legal protections from sexual harassment, authorize grants for low-income workers to help them seek legal recourse if they are harassed, and eliminate the lower minimum wage for tipped workers, which many say makes servers vulnerable to harassment by customers.”" Ask your Representative to support the Be Heard Act by clicking this link to send them a letter.


7. "JPMorgan Chase has loaned $196 billion to fossil fuel companies since the Paris Agreement was signed in late 2015 — enough money to buy 52 pipelines the size and scale of the Dakota Access Pipeline. There’s no other way to put it: JPMorgan Chase is profiting from causing climate change, and it’s the rest of us who are paying for it." Contact the CEO Jamie Dimon and ask him to stop funding this crisis.

8. Speaking of banks and climate change, JPMorgan Chase isn't the only one. Check out this video about HSBC from 350.org and please share.


9. Write to your Senators asking them to support the Violence Against Women Act. We need to put some pressure on them because the NRA is lobbying against this reauthorization. It easily passed the House and now moves to the Senate. "Moving forward, the bill faces an uncertain future. With its gun control provisions, the bill would likely be dead on arrival in the GOP-held Senate."(From ABC News)


10. Protect My Public Media is asking folks to email their Senators and encourage them to keep funding public media. The President's new budget calls for eliminating it. There is a link with a form you can fill out, but handwritten letters also go a long way.

Public Comments and Petitions

1. BlackRock is an investment management company with a big stake in Facebook. On May 30th there will be a shareholder meeting where investors will vote on Mark Zuckerberg for chair of the Board of Directors. Some major investors will be voting no. Write to BlackRock CEO Laurence Fink to ask him to vote No as well. Why? "Facebook hasn’t followed through on promises to clean up the hate driving white supremacist violence and the disinformation behind anti-Black voter suppression. Nor have they followed through on protecting users who trust the company with the personal details of their lives. And, as a recently published USA Today exposé demonstrates, Facebook continues to block Black users who speak out against racism."

Sign the online petition and letter here.


2. The abortion ban in Alabama serves only one purpose. They deliberately passed a law that is unconstitutional so that it would make it's way up to the Supreme Court. Now the focus needs to be on getting our voices heard in the highest court. It's possible that Chief Justice Roberts will not want to hear this case, let alone put it to a vote. He has a legacy to protect, after all. If it goes to a vote, Roe v. Wade will very likely be overturned and Justice Roberts will go down in history as the justice who let that happen. So let's put some pressure on him. Let's remind him that the majority in this country are pro-choice. The petition is here. Share on Twitter and Facebook.


3. This petition is to the major news networks asking them to call it a climate crisis. "Climate change is not just a buzz word or ploy to increase global recycling -- it’s a crisis transforming the Earth. Lethal heatwaves are the new normal. Stronger storms are continuously forcing millions from their homes. And kids across the country are leaving class for climate strikes midday so that adults understand that it’s their future at stake. But based on the coverage from major news networks, we’d think we have centuries to address the current emergency. The reality is quite different -- time is diminishing every day to address it -- we must act now."

U.S. Postcard Campaigns

1. Send a postcard to your Senators and Representative and tell them, "No to war with Iran!" First Trump says he doesn't want war, then he goes on a Twitter-spree saying it will be the end of Iran "If Iran wants to fight". Iran wasn't the one who left the nuclear deal, the U.S. did. We shouldn't be backing out of a deal and then threatening to destroy a country. This is John Bolton's war, not ours.

There are two bills, one in the House and one in the Senate, that you can also mention on your postcards. Both aim to stop the president from starting an unconstitutional war with Iran. Ask your MOCs to support these bills.

H.R. 2354

S.B. 1039

1. Send a letter to Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak thanking him for signing into law a ban on using "gay panic" or "trans panic" as a defense in court. “I was proud to sign into law a bill to ban the discriminatory and bigoted gay and trans ’panic’ defense tactic, which can be used to excuse violent hate crimes against LGBTQ+ individuals,” says Gov. Steve Sisolak in a statement. “Amid a disturbing rise in hate crimes against the LGBTQ+ community around the world, Nevada is reaffirming our commitment to justice and equality for all individuals.” Read more here.
