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. The March recess is coming up next week (March 18-22). We won't be sending out any scripts or campaigns, but Indivisible has some good suggestions for keeping our MoCs on their toes between now and then. Don't forget to ask for and show up to town hall meetings and make your voice heard in person.


2. Write our Senators asking them to support the Farmworkers Act. "Around the country, more than 2 million farmworkers work in fields harvesting the food that feeds us all. These workers are the backbone of our entire food system. But they are excluded from protections in the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act.... As a result, they aren’t ensured to be paid overtime for their work.... The discrimination against farmworkers was wrong in 1938 and it is still wrong today. Farmworkers toil each and every day providing food for people like you and me around the country. But unlike most workers, they do not receive overtime pay -- completely undermining and undervaluing the work they do." Read more and sign an online petition here.

3. Write to your Representative and ask them to support the Raise the Wage Act. There might be a vote in the House next month. "The federal minimum wage has not received an increase in nearly a decade. At $7.25 per hour, it is now more than 25 percent below where it was in real terms half a century ago." Read more and sign an online petition here.

4. Indivisible is encouraging us to write letters to the editor of our local papers calling out the President and his fake national emergency. You can find talking points, writing tips, and samples at this link. Also, you can put in your address and find the best papers to submit your letter.


5. Write to Senators Isakson and Perdue asking them to support S.J. Res. 7, A joint resolution to direct the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress. The Yemeni people have suffered enough. Read more here.


6. Write to your Senators and Representative asking them to support ANTIQUITIES Act of 2019. Congress has been working to reverse the President's land grab. "The Senate passed the largest public lands package in nearly a decade last week. Among other environmental strides, the landmark legislation would designate almost three-quarters of a million acres of Utah’s iconic San Rafael Swell and Desolation and Labyrinth Canyons as wilderness."

"A bill was recently introduced in the House that would expand the Bears Ears National Monument to 1.9 million acres, reversing Trump’s illegal decision in 2017 to slash the monument to a mere 200,000 acres and open vast swaths to polluters — the largest rollback of federally protected lands in American history. The bill would also help elevate Tribes' voices in managing their sacred lands — voices that Trump is desperately trying to silence."

The Antiquities Act would protect our water and land from further assault by this administration. Use this form if you like, and you can share on FB and Twitter too.


7. "A new study by Friends of the Earth and allies found that breakfast cereal, apples, applesauce, and pinto beans made and sold by Kroger contain residues of toxic pesticides linked to a range of serious health and environmental problems. This is nothing short of alarming." The following chemicals were found:

- glyphosate
- organophosphates
- neonicotinoid pesticides

Write to Kroger and ask them to stop stocking and selling foods containing these chemicals.

8. Two women have come forward with allegations against Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax of Virginia. (From the NYTimes) Given that Governor Ralph Northam is also in trouble for a racist photo, and Mr. Fairfax would take over if he is removed from office, there is a rising call for the Lt. Governor to resign. Feel free to add your voice.

Or use the contact form on his website.

While you are at it, you might want to write to Governor Ralph Northam and ask him to resign as well. He initially apologized for being in the racist photo, then reversed and said it wasn't him. Well which is it? (From USA Today)

9. Call out Matt Gaetz for his behavior at a hearing on gun violence where parents of the Parkland victims were in attendance. Mr. Gaetz thought this was a good time to yell about "illegal aliens" and a border wall. (Read more here.) The link has contact information and a letter you can personalize to send.


10. Remember a couple of weeks back when we asked you to write to Alex Azar to refuse to grant a South Carolina request to discriminate against foster parents based on religion? Well he did. This is a sneaky backdoor way to open this discrimation up all over the country. Georgia Unites is asking us to write our Members of Congress and ask them to support the Do No Harm Act.

"The Do No Harm Act clarifies that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act is intended to protect religious freedom without allowing the infliction of harm on other people." Human Rights Campaign has a good breakdown of the bill.

U.S. Postcard Campaigns

1. Send a postcard to your Senators saying "No to Rao!" or "Reject Neomi Rao for the DC Circuit Court".

She's been nominated as a Federal judge to the DC Circuit Court by the President but her record on environmental issues is abysmal. "Rao has led efforts to roll back protections intended to keep our air, water, and public lands clean -- from the Mercury and Methane Rule to the Clean Power Plan.... If confirmed, Rao will surely continue to back Trump and the GOP’s agenda of undermining our critical environmental protections. But the Senate still has to confirm her -- and some Republicans are wavering in their support... The DC Circuit hears a vast number of cases concerning environmental and public health protections. But Rao’s record clearly shows that she’s more interested in rewarding the fossil fuel industry than upholding our environmental safeguards."

Want to send a positive note instead?

1. Have you been following the controversy over Ilhan Omar's statements about big donors and AIPAC fueling the pro-Israel policies such as the anti-BDS bill? She's getting a lot of flack over her comments. She's been condemned by both the right and the left. They are accusing her of anti-Semitic comments. What she said was: “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” She also tweeted earlier (it has since been removed), but she issued an apology you can read here. Read more at The Intercept.

If you don't agree that Ms. Omar's statements are anti-Semitic and would like to send her a letter of support, you can write to her here.

Representative Ilhan Omar

Washington, DC 20515


2. Send a note of thanks to Atlanta's city council president Felicia Moore and the rest of the council for this fabulous resolution. "Atlanta will move to 100 percent “clean energy” by 2035, according to a resolution passed Monday by Atlanta City Council. The goal is to have Atlanta use renewable energy, like wind and solar, and move away from power sources like coal, natural gas and nuclear." Read more at the AJC.
