UPDATE (03/15/19): Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we should encourage our representatives to hold tele-town halls to replace in-person meetings. Ask your rep to hold a digital meeting this week to discuss the outbreak and the next steps our communities can take.
The House of Representatives is in congressional recess from March 16-22nd. This time is allotted for members of Congress to work in their districts and engage with constituents they represent. It is also the perfect time for them to hold public town halls and hear the concerns of their constituents live and in person.
Your representatives work for you: you should have regular opportunities to discuss their positions, platforms, and how their legislative agendas will affect you and those close to you. Town halls are a critical tool for holding representatives accountable for their actions and ensuring that these men and women, who spend much of their time outside of their home states, are hearing the needs and concerns of their constituents in person.
Take the opportunity during this recess period to speak to your members of Congress. Attend a scheduled town hall, or if your congressional members refuse to hold a town hall, request a meeting to discuss your concerns.
NOTE: Select a local office number to get the most up-to-date town hall schedule information.
