Why August Recess Matters
Download the Drop-by Visit Checklist & Sample Script
At FCNL, we hear from members of Congress all the time that your emails, calls and other communications make a difference. But congressional staff tell us that visits to congressional offices in states and districts for even 5 or 10 minutes can have a lasting impact. You can be an effective advocate, no matter your background, schedule or location.
Our Goal for August Recess
What members of Congress do in the fall will depend in large part on what the hear when they are home for the August recess – which is why we are setting an ambitious goal of 100 advocates visiting local congressional offices this month.
