Policy Change Without Representation: DC Action Steps

February 15, 2017

For DC residents, influencing policy without congressional representation can be a challenge. Here's what you can do.

A person holds a sign that says This is What a Lobbyist Looks Like
  • Set up a meeting with Congress for friends visiting DC, or help them schedule one in their state
  • Bring FCNL's #LoveThyNeighbor materials to your meeting, church, or organization, or carry our signs at a protest
  • Have thoughtful dialogues about politics with people who aren't engaged or often disagree with you
  • When policies affect you personally, share your story with FCNL so we can bring it to congressional leadership (just email support@fcnl.org)
  • Drop off postcards from friends and family from your home state to their congressional offices in DC
  • Find a buddy in another state, and forward them action alerts from FCNL when it's important -- or encourage them to sign up at fcnl.org/join
