Monthly Advocacy Tip: Remember Thanks!

More articles »

One of the most important rules in advocacy is to remember to say thanks.  If a legislator helped out on your issue, or voted the way you asked, it is important to let them know you noticed!  Even if the "thank you" is a "thank you for listening to me" - it's important.  Legislators remember who thanks them - and who took their hard work for granted.

  1. Send your legislators a hand-written note to their home addresses, thanking them for their work this session. Mention any specific issues that were important to you.  Ask them to let you know when they are having events this summer, or keep you posted on the issues you care about.
