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. Vulnerable populations deserve protection and treatment. A new division and new guidelines at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will “ease the way for doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to opt out of providing services that violate their moral or religious beliefs.” This could lead to medical professionals refusing to perform abortions or treat transgender individuals and is considered to be “a major civil rights rollback” by many. If you are bothered by this please write HHS and Trump. Read more at the Washington Post.

HHS Acting Secretary Eric Hargan
200 Independence Avenue, S.W.
Washington, D.C. 20201


2. If you were horrified and outraged by the allegations and stories of how USA Gymnastics Dr. Larry Nassar abused vulnerable young gymnasts, please let USA Gymnastics know. This doctor was in their employ. They bear responsibility. According to Olympian Ali Raisman, “treatments with [Nassar] were mandatory.” We must protect girls and women in our society. The abuse affected many, many young girls over a period of 30 years! This is beyond comprehension. Write USAG CEO and let her know your thoughts.

Read the full Raisman statement here and notice that she demands USA Gymnastics take responsibility.

You can read up on the issue here:

Indianapolis, IN 46204


3. Representing PA’s 13th District, Rep. Brendan Boyle has introduced HR4742, the STABLE GENIUS Act, which would require presidential candidates (beginning in 2020) to undergo a complete physical by the Dept. of the Navy. According to Boyle, "Before voting for the highest office in the land, Americans have a right to know whether an individual has the physical and mental fitness to serve as President.” Read more here.

Full text for HR4742

If you support this, please thank Rep. Boyle and urge your representative to support the measure.

Rep. Brendan Boyle
1133 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515


4. Georgia’s own Rep from district 10, Jody Hice, has introduced HR 586, Sanctity of Human Life Act, which states “that human life shall be deemed to begin with fertilization.” Many other GA Reps are co-sponsors and you can read that list here. If Hice or one of his co-sponsors (Allen/GA 12, Carter/GA1, Collins/GA9, Ferguson/GA3, Graves/GA14, Loudermilk/GA11, Scott/GA8, or Woodall/GA7), is your Rep, please let them know your thoughts on this. The ramifications of this could help law makers change abortion laws.

Full text for HR586 here


5. CHIP, the Children’s Healthcare Insurance Program, funds will run out in some states in January. “The CHIP program provides health coverage to 9 million children from lower-income households that make too much money to qualify for Medicaid.”

Please urge your members of congress to fix this problem. Read more at NPR.


6. Do you think the war on drugs has failed? Are you annoyed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has revoked Obama-era rules leaving marijuana as a states rights issue? Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has introduced the Marijuana Justice Act, which would legalize marijuana at the federal level. Urge your senator to support S.1689 - Marijuana Justice Act of 2017. In addition, write Jeff Sessions and let him know if you are opposed to his action.

Jeff Sessions
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001


7. Compared to lunches around the world, US school lunches don’t seem that healthy and now the “USDA secretary announces [a] halt on school nutrition standards [and] the rollback of Obama-era nutrition standards [that] would allow schools to serve higher-sodium foods as well as fattier and flavored milk to students. Georgia’s own Sonny Perdue is the Secretary of the USDA. Let Sonny know if you think that standards should be RAISED, not LOWERED. Read more at the Christian Science Monitor and the Huffington Post.

Sec. Sonny Perdue
U.S. Department of Agriculture
1400 Independence Ave., S.W.
Washington, DC 20250


8. Gagging our national agencies is a step toward fascism. That appears to be happening at the CDC. The Washington Post reports that ‘The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases… The forbidden terms are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”’ (From the Washington Post)

What can we do to combat this anti-science, anti-free speech directive? Write to Trump and your Members of Congress. Tell Trump “science not silence”, “do not direct scientists in their studies!”, “you are not the vocabulary police!”, etc.

Ask your MOC to act to protect free speech in our government agencies. Words should not be banned at the CDC or any other government agency.


9. Please contact Georgia Attorney General, Chris Carr. Ask him to join the lawsuit against the FCC regarding the repeal of Net Neutrality.

Chris Carr
Office of the Attorney General
40 Capitol Square, SW
Atlanta, Ga 30334
Phone: (404) 656-3300
Fax: (404) 657-8733


10. Please tell your MOC to support Mueller’s investigation into the Russia scandal. Urge them to conduct a thorough, impartial investigation. We must root out those working against our democracy and to hold Russia and those working with them to account.

Public Comments and Petitions

1. Do you think it's time to impeach Trump? Join millions of Americans who have signed a petition started by billionaire hedge fund manager Tom Steyer to impeach Trump. The campaign also urges you to contact your representatives in Congress and demand impeachment. Sign Need to Impeach here.

Local Writing Campaigns and Topics

1. Tell Governor Deal to stop cutting education funding in Georgia. The 2018-2019 budget “calls calls for districts to get $166 million less than the amount calculated by the state’s own school funding formula. This leaves school districts unable to hire teachers and reduce class sizes or to offer key supports for students.” (From Better Georgia)

Gov. Nathan Deal
Office of the Governor
206 Washington Street
111 State Capitol
Atlanta, Georgia 30334


2. Tommy Hunter, the Gwinnett County Commissioner who last year called US Rep. John Lewis a “racist pig”, has “threatened to file a $5 million lawsuit against other commissioners for sanctioning him over the remarks”. The suit will allege that the “reprimand caused ongoing and permanent economic and non-economic damage to Hunter”. Read the article and if you are bothered please write to Hunter and let him know.

U.S. Postcard Campaigns

1. “This year on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day the Albuquerque Journal ran a repulsive advertisement from Los Ranchos Gun Shop that invoked the name and image of Dr. King in order to sell firearms and ammunition.” If this is appalling to you, write the Albuquerque Journal and voice your opinion. The article lists two ways to protest: write on Facebook page of the gun shop and write a letter to the editor at the Journal. (From One Pulse for America)

Karen Moses / Editor-in-Chief
The Albuquerque Journal
7777 Jefferson Street NE
Albuquerque, N.M., 87109


2. Really? In a pilot program, NY prison inmates in three prisons can no longer receive books in the mail. This is an attempt to prevent contraband from entering the prison. Though the prison library is still available to them, if they want to buy a book, “Novels cost $11.25 from one vendor. A book about chess costs $29.95 from another. When there were five vendors, 77 books were available for purchase and 24 of the titles were coloring books.” Read the article and if this seems ludicrous to you, write Governor Andrew Cuomo a quick postcard and let him know.

NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224

1. Sadly, in these times it is not often that we are able to thank our Senators for doing the right thing. Let’s let Senator Johnny Isakson know we appreciate his condemnation of Trump’s “sh*&^hole” comments. Though there are a lot of “Ifs” and “buts” in Isakson’s statement, he is at least condemning it , “if” it happened. Conversely, our other Senator, David Perdue, did “not recall the president saying these comments specifically”, though he was in the meeting.

Isakson, who was not in the meeting, stated “I did not hear it, but if it’s true, he owes the people of Haiti and all mankind an apology. That is not the kind of statement the leader of the free world ought to make, and he ought to be ashamed of himself. If he did not make it, he needs to corroborate the fact and prove it and then move forward.” Click here to see how all Republican lawmakers responded to Trump’s vulgar comments.


2. Congratulate Steph Koontz, the first transgender official elected in Georgia. She was recently sworn in as a City Council Seat for District 3 in Doraville, GA.
You can contact her here or email her directly at stephekoontz@gmail.com.
