  1. Advocacy Resource Write Effective Emails to Congress 

    Do emails to Congress work? While a single email won't often change a policymaker's position, email is a critical part of strategic advocacy for the policies you care about.

  2. Advocacy Resource Publish Letters to the Editor 

    Publishing letters to the editor and op-eds is a great way to get the attention of your members of Congress. But first, you need to write a piece that tells your story – not just the facts.

  3. Advocacy Resource Help! My Representatives Are Great. What Now? 

    Why and how to communicate with your members of Congress

    Your work isn't over on Election Day. While your members of Congress might agree with you, are they leaders on issues you care about, or are they sitting on the sidelines? Work with your members of Congress to advance peace and justice.

  4. Advocacy Resource Help! My Representatives Never Agree with Me 

    Why and how to communicate with your members of Congress

    It can be frustrating when your members of Congress disagree with you on many or even most issues. But with persistence, organizing, and strategy, you can move your members of Congress toward peace and justice.
