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.


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!

Consider these tips to ensure your opinion is read:

U.S. Writing Campaigns and Topics

Note: The state legislature is back in session. Please check the second section below for write campaigns to state Senators, Representatives, Governor, and Lt. Governor.

1. Ivanka Trump should not be meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha now that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been ousted. Let President Trump and your Members of Congress know if this “blatant nepotism” bothers you. Read more at Yahoo.

2. Citing it as an undue burden, The EPA has dropped a requirement that mining companies prove they have money in reserved for pollution clean up. Abandoned mines and contaminated sites litter our land. Those that profit from mining should be responsible for cleaning up after themselves. Let Scott Pruit and your members of Congress know we want mining companies to clean up! (From the Chicago Tribune)

3. Urge your members of Congress and Trump to call off the charade of a military parade scheduled for Veteran’s Day (November 11, 2018). This is a waste of resources and nothing more than grandstanding. A ridiculous display. A national embarrassment. “The D.C. City Council … already tweeted its objections ("Tanks but No Tanks”).” Seriously, “tanks but no tanks” is a wonderful rallying cry against this travesty. Read more at NPR.

4. It has been about a year since Ryan Zinke was confirmed as Secretary of the Interior. He is on track to be $200,000 over his travel budget. He has used our taxes to fund personal travel, as well. During a July helicopter tour of Nevada monuments (that he wanted to shrink!), “he was joined by a Bureau of Land Management supervisor who usually oversees firefighting crews, the same day there were more than 20 fires in the region.” So not only is he giving away drilling and mining rights to OUR national lands and monuments, he is bleeding us dry with his travel budget and taking personnel and resources away from fighting fires. This man needs to be stopped. Read more at The Hill and US News.

Let him know your thoughts. Ask your US Representative to impeach Zinke! The US Rep starts the process with impeachment and then the Senate would try him. On their website, they state, “The U.S. Department of the Interior uses sound science to manage and sustain America’s lands, water, wildlife, and energy resources, honors our nation’s responsibilities to tribal nations, and advocates for America’s island communities. As keepers of our nation’s legacy, we manage the resources in our care to benefit Americans now and in the future. Our department and its employees are developing and implementing the cutting-edge science and expert management techniques that make this possible. We are also taking actions to help America transform the challenges it faces today into opportunities for tomorrow.” (From U.S. Department of the Interior) Zinke is not doing this. He is shrinking national monuments, opening loopholes for big oil and more, and opening our oceans to drilling. Tell the House to impeach now for dereliction of duty!

And/or sign the NRDC’s letter to Zinke here.

5. Trade wars are NOT good things! Urge your Members of Congress to put pressure on Trump not to “impose a 25% tariff on steel imports and 10% tariffs aluminum”. The majority of steel imports come from Canada and the EU, our ALLIES. The cost of products like beer and household appliances would likely go up and we would anger our allies for no good reason. Read more at CNN.

Already, the Swedish company Electrolux has put on hold a $250 million US investment in Tennessee because of Trump’s tweets about these tariffs. (From Reuters)

If you want to further understand the unintended consequences of tariffs, research the Smoot-Hawley Tariff and how it may have affected the Great Depression. Further reading from the CATO Institute.

6. Ask your member of Congress to investigate Donald Trump and his advisor Carl Ichan, who sold over 30 million in stock in a company that is heavily reliant on steel just days before Trump announced tariffs on steel. Sounds fishy, doesn’t it? Sounds like insider trading, doesn’t it? (From NPR)

7. Several companies have cut ties with the NRA, but there are few notable exceptions: Amazon, FedEx, YouTube, Apple, and Roku. There are a few others listed in this article as well. If you use one of these services, consider letting them know how you feel about their support for NRAtv and the discounts they offer to NRA members.

8. Urge Congress to end the Dickey Amendment, which prevents the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from using money to ‘advocate or promote gun control.’” Essentially, this amendment to a 1996 bill pushed by the National Rifle Association, keeps the CDC from researching gun violence. Repeal of the amendment would allow the CDC to study gun violence as a “public health problem”. Write your Members of Congress and ask them to repeal the Dickey Amendment now! Read more at The Atlantic.

9. The week wouldn’t be complete without a letter to Scott Pruitt at the EPA. In a recent interview Pruitt used the Bible to justify anti-environmental policy. This is outrageous. If (and that is a big IF) the Bible should be used in relation to environmental policy, it should be used to advocate protecting God’s creation, the Earth, and its oceans, forests, air, water, and land. The head of the EPA should be using SCIENCE and FACTS to protect, not destroy, our environment. Let Pruitt know your thoughts. Read more at Vox.

10. Ryan Zinke and Trump are at it again! This time they want to improve National Parks by destroying them. Great plan, guys. Yes, our parks deserve repairs and improvements but a “fund supported by 50% increased Federal energy leasing and development activities” is not the way to do it. In fact, it seems like the Public Lands Infrastructure Fund, as outlined in the proposed White House budget, is just a vehicle to open up National Parks to mineral and fossil fuel extraction. Let Zinke, Trump, and your Members of Congress know that this is not acceptable. Read more here.

U.S. Postcard Campaigns

1. No, sadly and disturbingly, this is not a joke! “The Trump administration has launched a commission at the Interior Department to promote big-game trophy hunting and the ‘economic benefits that result from US citizens traveling to foreign nations to engage in hunting.’ The council, which will cost taxpayers $250,000 a year, is charged with making recommendations to Secretary Ryan Zinke about removing barriers to importing trophy hunting animals—such as the recently overturned ban on elephant and lion trophies from some countries—and relaxing legal restrictions on hunting and importing endangered species.” Reportedly, the NRA has a rep on the “commission” and the commission thinks hunting big game is the key to conservation. What the heck? Read more at Mother Jones.

Tell Trump and Zinke that this is sad, preposterous, insulting, anti-conservationist, ignorant, embarrassing, etc.

2. Tell the Trump administration if you oppose bringing elephant trophies into the US. These majestic animals deserve protection. African elephants should not be hunted and their “parts” should not be legally imported into the US. Conservationists and many US citizens agree. Tell Trump not to go back on his pledge.

1. The Kroger grocery store chain will stop selling magazines about assault rifles, they announced last week. Every small step will help change the gun culture in our country. Several weeks ago Kroger “said it would stop selling guns and ammunition to anyone under the age of 21. Kroger sells guns through its 45 Fred Meyer stores, located in four Western states.” If you appreciate Kroger’s efforts, let them know. (From the Gwinnett Daily Post)

Georgia's State Legislators

Write your state legislators to offer your opinion on Georgia state laws and issues. Begin by visiting to find the addresses for your state senator and state representative - you will have one of each. Enter your address and you'll see them on the right, along with your district numbers. Click the names to get their capitol and district mailing addresses.

Because the Lieutenant Governor oversees the movement of legislation through the senate, we suggest that each time you contact your state senator, you also consider contacting the Lieutenant Governor's office:

Georgia Specific Writing Campaigns and Topics

1. Students in K-5 need recess. Ask your State Reps to support HB273. “It is a happy talent to know how to play.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Read more at the AJC.

2. Move on When Ready, which allows high schoolers to take and get college credit, currently does not allow these high school students to be valedictorian or salutatorian. HB 114 would “prohibit local school systems from excluding students in dual credit courses from valedictorian or salutatorian determinations”. Encourage your rep to support this.
