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. It's hard to believe the first writing campaign of the year is going to be about opening up the governement, but here it is.

Please write to both David Perdue and Johnny Isakson expressing your support for a clean continuing resolution (no money for a wall or immigration enforcement!) and reopening the government.

If you'd like some writing points, this blog post goes over who is most affected by the shutdown. Also Indivisble has a shutdown guide for more actions.


2. Write to your Representative and ask them to support the Raise the Wage Act of 2019.

Full text of the bill (still pending).

"This week, Reps. Bobby Scott, Stephanie Murphy and Mark Pocan introduced the “Raise the Wage Act of 2019”, which would raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024. In 2017, EPI estimated that this would directly or indirectly lift the wages of 41.5 million working people―29.2 percent of the wage-earning workforce. This will generate $144 billion in additional income for families who need it most, including 23.1 million women and 4.5 million single parents." (From Economic Policy Institute. Link also includes a petition you can sign.)


3. Write and ask your Representative to support H.R.8, which closes a loophole that "enables criminals, domestic abusers, and other people who aren't allowed to have guns to buy them with no background checks and no questions asked if they simply go to an unlicensed seller".(From Everytown for Gun Safety. Link also includes a petition.)

Full text of the bill (still pending).

Public Comments and Petitions

1. United We Dream is asking people to share their message against funding the border wall. It says, "Trump is the one who put our communities in danger by killing #TPS and #DACA and then blocking the #DreamAct. We do not want his wall. Congress has to pass clean permanent protections for immigrants & stop the #TrumpShutdown!" Feel free to Tweet and Share on Facebook.


2. From Sierra Rise, "The Department of Interior has proposed severe restrictions on how it will interpret the Freedom of Information Act, which is the landmark law that protects the rights of journalists, environmentalists, and everyday people to obtain information about what their government is up to. These changes (detailed below) would make it far more difficult to expose corrupt actions by Trump appointees."

There is a public comment period open right now. The Freedom of Information Act is crucial to our country and the Interior Dept. is crucial for keeping our public federal land safe from destructive drilling and pipelines, etc. Here's an article from The Guardian explaining more.

Comment here before Jan 28th.

Local Writing Campaigns and Topics

1. If you haven't already, you might want to follow ACLU of Georgia on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. They are going to be keeping a watch on the Georgia legislature as it ramps up for 2019. National change often starts locally, so following our state government is as important as federal. Their website is here.

Also, check out their Citizen Lobby Days. We'll add them to the calendar too.

U.S. Postcard Campaigns

2. Not necessarily a postcard, but there is a campaign to send a note to Jayme Closs. She was the girl who was orphaned and kidnapped. She managed to escape, but she's got a long road ahead of her. A P.O. box has been set up to send her messages of support.

New York is the latest state to pass a ban on conversion therapy. The bill is on it's way to Governor Cuomo's desk for his signature. He hasn't signed it yet, but here's a statement from his office.
