Day 14 Action:
Take 5 minutes. Make 5 calls.
Ta-da! You’re a contributing member of society! Side-effects may include a feeling of purpose and accomplishment, a fresh bounce in your step and a slight feeling of smugness- go with it.
Action and Organization:
VISIT http://www.5calls.org, type in your zip and it will automatically pull up your representatives and a short script you can use for all the issues of the day (so many issues these days). You can even mark down if you’ve reached them, left a vm, or if the line was busy- furthering your sense of accomplishment.
JOIN their email list so they can keep you up to date on new issues and new calls to make.
FOLLOW them on twitter @make5calls
DOWNLOAD their app and always have it handy.
SHARE with your friends – and then they’ll tell two people and then they’ll tell two people…
Fellow Non-Represented Residents of D.C./Puerto Rico/Guam/American Samoa, et al.
Even though we -unconstitutionally- do not have representation in Congress, you can still put in zip codes and call Senators if you don’t live in their states.
