Once your congressperson forms a public stance on an issue, it’s hard for them to walk it back. The earlier they hear your opinion, the more likely it is you’ll make an impact.
Calling is by far the most effective way to ensure that your representative hears you before they take a public stance..
By contrast, congressional staffers tally phone calls right away.
If you support their stance…
You need to let your congressperson know! When they talk to colleagues, they use call tallies and personal stories from constituents to better support their positions.
If you oppose or don’t know their stance…
Calling is the easiest way to sway them! Your congressperson gets regular call tally reports, letting them know how strongly their constituents feel about an issue.
