It may sound elementary, but have you ever sent an e-mail to your member of Congress? Did you know you could?
E-mail is a great first step in starting a conversation with a legislator, registering your concerns and interests, and building courage regarding your power as an advocate. The process of crafting an e-mail to your legislator is also a good way to begin getting to know how to research your member of Congress.
Next, create and send your e-mail. The EPIC format (Engage, state the Problem, Inform about a solution, give a Call to Action) is very useful to the process of crafting an advocacy message to your legislator. RESULTS also has e-mail actions you can take directly from our website. You can send e-mails to members of Congress, as well as letters to the editor. Go to our Take Action page on the RESULTS website to find current actions you can take today. Then, celebrate your victory!
