ACTION TIPS: Communicating with Legislators

  • For hearings, be sure written testimony goes to each member of any committee holding the hearing unless you are sure you will be there to be heard.
  • If you are not testifying but have a concern, whenever you can meet your legislators in person, do so.
  • If you cannot appear personally to make your case, telephone.
  • If you can’t call, write a snail mail, then fax your letter.
  • If you can do none of the above, email.
  • Always be polite and respectful.
  • Be sure to advise your government leaders or their staff that you will report to all you know how you were treated. For instance, was your concern treated with seriousness and respect or ignored? You should then report to all you know using every platform available, including letters to the editor, and social media.
  • Good Luck!!!
