Do something only you can do.

How to contact your elected officials (federal, state & local)

[Consider a dedicated / separate email address for activism  (Democratic Society:  “This allows all traffic coming through from sites … to come through to the dedicated email address and not clog up or get lost in your personal Inbox.”)]

Contact your representatives in Congress above, with existing Facebook login or create a Countable account right here (with an email address & password) as you send your first message.  (from Countable Action Toolkit)


Resistbot: turns your text messages into daily faxed letters to Congress. “You’ll be prompted to provide your name, zip code, and a message you’d like to send to your senators. Once you’re happy with your message, Resistbot will format it to look professional and fax it to both of your senators.”


21 Applets for Activism by IFTTT:   “(“if this, then that”) helps users by getting other online tools to work together in the case of a trigger event. For example, if you’re interested in a certain piece of legislation, as soon as it’s published on, the text could be posted [on a] channel you share with other activists.” Fast Company
