Members of Congress Won’t Work on Counseling Issues Unless You Ask Them To!

The Information Age has changed our entire society, including the policymaking process. Communicating with each other is incredibly easy, and the “computerization” of communication has had a dramatic, fundamental effect on legislative advocacy.
There are an unbelievable set of demands placed on Representatives and Senators in work on legislative policy issues, constituent services, public availability, and campaigning. Members of Congress won‟t know how to represent counselors‟ interests unless counselors tell them how to do this, and there are more than enough other interest groups clamoring for their time and attention to keep them busy if counselors don‟t speak up. Communicating with members of Congress doesn‟t always—or even usually—yield the desired results, but it‟s the only way to make policy changes happen.
A few basic rules apply for all forms of communicating, whether via face-to-face meetings, phone calls, e-mails, or letters:

How to effectively talk to your member of congress
Should I send a letter or make a phone call?

First, tweeting or writing on Facebook is largely ineffective.

Second, writing a letter to the district office (state) is better than sending an email or writing a letter to DC.

But, the most effective thing is to actually call them on the phone. At their district (state) office. They have to talk to you there.


Tips on Calling Your Member of Congress
When you dial 202-224-3121 you are directed to an operator at the Capitol switchboard. This switchboard can direct you to both senators as well as representatives.
Once the operator answers, ask to be connected to whomever you are trying to reach. They will send you to your senator's or representative's office line, and a legislative assistant will answer the phone.
It is important to let them know why you are calling and what issue you are calling about. You will sometimes be able to speak directly to your senator or representative, but more often you will speak to a staff person in the member's office. This person keeps track of how many people called and their positions on issues, and provides a summary to the member. Be assured that your call does count, even if you are not able to speak directly to your senator or representative.
It is usually most effective to call your own senators and representatives, as each is primarily concerned with residents from his or her district. However, you may occasionally find it useful to call other members, if they are on a certain committee or in a particular position to help get a bill passed.
* Although you may find it easiest to always call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 to reach your senators or representative, you can also find the direct number to any member's office by consulting the Senate phone list or House phone list.

Understand why phone calls and in-person meetings are more effective

Because emails and other written correspondence is so easily batched by computer programs, a hundred or a thousand emails on a subject both require the same amount of effort by staff. Phone calls are more effective because they require a staffer to be on the phone with someone and respond to questions immediately.

Calling your representative’s DC office might feel more natural because they are the office primarily responsible for managing legislation. However, the state office staffers are usually from your state and part of the community you live in—they are truly local. Also, state office numbers are less likely to be busy or have a long hold. Significant volumes of calls in a state office also require coordination by the DC and district office staff and get noticed right away.
From time to time, I had large groups of people come into our state office by appointment and share their stories. This was particularly effective with immigration and climate change groups who brought in experts to answer questions. They gave perspective and knowledge we would not have had otherwise. It is easy to get an appointment with a local staffer or a DC staffer, and these relationships pay off.

My spouse is an advocate for veterans and disabled veterans health care. He writes letters to his State representative, John Lewis, often. He receives replies back, sometimes from more than one person.
Some might think, yes, the VA will get attention. NOT.
VA health nonbenefits are horriable.
I wrote emails to the the 2 Bush presidents.
I plan to store the addresses in my phone and send a letter or email on the go.
It won't mean much, like my spouses letters, if I'm the only one sending letters. All are welcome, please.

We need to be prepared with our letters when Civil Rights come under attack.

Sessions has a confirmation hearing coming up. Write your senator to vote no.
