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 your U.S. House representative and encourage them to support legislation by John Sarbanes (D-Md.) to protect voting rights.

"The first bill Democrats plan to introduce and pass if they win control of the House of Representatives on Nov. 6 will be a comprehensive package of campaign finance, voting rights, redistricting and ethics reforms." Read more at the Huffington Post


2. Trump's proposed restrictions on protesting near the White House include restrictions on signs, where one can protest, and even requiring fees be paid. "The Senate will soon vote on whether to confirm Trump's nominee Raymond David Vela as director of the National Park Service, which manages these areas." Before the Senate confirms Mr. Vela, we need an assurance that he will withdraw the proposed rule. Encourage your Senator to ask for that commitment or ask them to not confirm. (From the ACLU)


3. Send a message to your Senators and Representative asking them to make a statement to reject white nationalism. Read more here. The website has links for you to Tweet or post to their Facebook pages directly.


4. Everytown for Gun Safety has a new tool that helps you Tweet your members of Congress.

"Tweet at them NOW and tell them to #BreakThePattern of inaction and pass comprehensive background checks in January. Ask your lawmakers to make comprehensive background checks a priority."


5. Write your Representative and ask them to stand with asylum-seekers and hold the President accountable in upholding asylum protections. You can Tweet about it too, use the hashtag #StandWithAsylumSeekers

"On Thursday, November 8, the administration announced a blanket ban on asylum-seekers fleeing gang violence and persecution in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Asylum-seekers have a right to due process and to have their cases heard when seeking safety from violence." (From International Rescue Committee)


6. Want to support transgender and nonbinary people? Here are a few unique ideas. Check out the link for the full list. From The Women's March

- "Raise the public profile of this ballot initiative by signal boosting on social media and make sure you include the words, “VOTE YES ON 3 to SUPPORT EQUALITY." Hyperlink, visit, and donate to FreedomMassachusetts.org. Use the hashtag, #YesOn3."

- "Follow legal organizations (like LAMBDA Legal, the ACLU, and Transgender Law Center) for updates on when you’re able to weigh in. They will give you templatized talking points and instructions for your convenience. For this measure, we expect the comment period to be in the next two months."

- "Follow trans journalists and signal-boost their work or sign up for their newsletters. And when you see articles about trans people appearing in mainstream media, hold them accountable by asking why a trans person didn’t write or appear in the piece."


7. "This summer, Minnesota regulators approved one of the largest proposed pipelines in North America, the Enbridge Line 3 tar sands pipeline. This pipeline would carry more than 760,000 barrels of tar sands oil from Canada every day, making it just as big as Keystone XL – devastating our climate, threatening the Mississippi River, and violating Indigenous rights.

Enbridge Energy secured a permit in June to move forward with the project while ignoring the explicit objections of tribal nations, climate scientists, and even most of Minnesota’s state agencies. Our friends and allies in the Great Lakes have asked us to stand with them and send messages to their Governor, urging him to do everything he can to stop Line 3 during his short remaining time in office. As he retires and his replacement takes over in November, the next Governor will also be critical to win this fight.

Tell Governor Dayton to protect the rights of Indigenous peoples and our planet by stopping the Line 3 pipeline." From 350.org. There is a script at this link you can use or adapt.

Office of Governor Mark Dayton
130 State Capitol
75 Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
St. Paul, MN 55155


8. "The Trump Administration is considering whether to grant a South Carolina request that would effectively allow faith-based foster care agencies in the state the ability to deny Jewish parents from fostering children in its network. The argument, from the state and from the agency, is that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act should not force a Protestant group to work with Jewish people if it violates a tenet of their faith.

The case being made by South Carolina is an extension of the debate around RFRA, which is more commonly associated with discrimination against LGBTQ people, but by no means applies exclusively to that group." Read more at The Intercept

The request has been sent to the HHS (Health & Human Services). You can send a Tweet to the secretary of HHS, Alex Azar, here.

Or write to him:
Secretary Alex Azar

Hubert H. Humphrey Building
200 Independence Avenue, S.W.
Washington, D.C. 20201


9. Did you hear about the student left out during an active shooter drill at Stafford County Middle School? Faculty didn't know how to protect the student because she is transgender. She was forced to sit in the gym while the rest of the students were taking cover and finally told to sit in a hallway by herself. This is an outrage!

Although this was a couple of weeks ago, more attention should be brought to this story. Share it on Facebook and Twitter as well as send an email to the superintendent. This can't become normal. It's bad enough we have to teach children what to do in the case of a school shooting, but to leave some children out as sitting ducks is beyond cruel. From Metro Weekly

Dr. Scott Kizner, Superintendent

10. Effective October 8th - "President Donald Trump's administration began denying visas to the unmarried, same-sex partners of foreign diplomats and officials and employees of the United Nations this week — making marriage a requirement to be eligible for a visa." (From USA Today)

Write a letter to Secretary Mike Pompeo demanding he reverse this decision.

Mike Pompeo
U.S. Department of State
2201 C St., NW
Washington, DC 20520

Public Comments and Petitions

1. "The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) under the Trump administration is attempting to roll back critical protections for working people, attacking workers’ rights to organize and collectively bargain. In a new proposed rule, the NLRB is siding with corporate interests―pitting business owners against workers." (From Economic Policy Institute)

They are trying to make it easier for corporations to avoid responsibility for violations of labor law and erode workers’ rights to collectively bargain. The public comments are open until December 13th.


2. "A federal judge invalidated Trump’s "presidential permit" for Keystone XL, ruling that the Administration violated key laws when it approved the pipeline." Add your name to the petition against this pipeline and any others like it. Then share on social media.


Past public comments/petitions can be found here.

Local Writing Campaigns and Topics

1. There two run-offs coming up on December 4th. The first is between John Barrow and Brad Raffensberger for Secretary of State. The second is between Lindy Miller and Chuck Eaton for Public Service Commissioner. If you are so inclined, reach out the campaigns and see if you can help out.


Past local campaigns can be found here.

U.S. Postcard Campaigns

1. The bad news is the Trump administration is limiting access to birth control. The good news is we just elected in a pro-reproductive U.S. House. Urge your Representative join them in support of women. There is a form you can fill out at the link, but we'd encourge you to also send a postcard saying something like, 'Hands off our birth control.' (From Planned Parenthood)


Past postcard campaigns can be found here.

Want to send a positive note instead?

1. Thank the Stone Mountain Memorial Association for denying a permit for a white supremacist rally at the park during the Super Bowl in February. There is a contact form on the website. (From the AJC)

Read more at SPLC.


2. Send a card of love and support through The Rainbow Cards Project to counteract discrimination in the LGBTQ+ community. From the site, "...The Rainbow Cards Project is a non-profit organisation aiming to combat the prejudice and discrimination that LGBTQ+ people face with kindness and human connection."
