Day 14: Just 5 Calls

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. 

  • VA – 20176
  • MD – 20601
  • PA – 15001. <- got us into this mess
  • OH – 43001 <- ditto
  • FL – 32003 <- ditto

Extra Credit: Call Senator Feinstein and voice your support for a filibuster over the cabinet nominations- her office seems to think there isn’t enough support for this action…

Senator Dianne Feinstein 

Phone: (202) 224-3841

TTY/TDD: (202) 224-2501
