Protect Yourself: Flooding Your Representatives with Letters

16935780_10154146351972714_1105720762_oIf you want to write a million letters to your senator, there are no laws prohibiting you from doing so.

I would recommend addressing one topic per letter. Keep it simple. Apparently, congressmen don’t have a lot of time.

Some websites have said not to write postcards but I say do it. Write postcards. Send faxes. Emails are alright but they might get lost in the shuffle.

Keep the language clean. Do not threaten anyone or make insane demands. They might answer questions but no one can promise anything. Cursing doesn’t help your cause.

Maybe don’t send glitterbomb letters. ( I know. It would be hilarious! However, you may not get your concerns heard afterward the representative opens your letter.  Plus, they might not accept mail from you anymore.) So no glitterbombs!

Carry on! Write as many letters and postcards as you want! I found my fancy notecards so I did write one letter today. It’s not a million but it’s a start.

 

  • Keep it simple. Stick to one topic.
  • No cursing or wild demands.
  • No glitterbombs.
  • Write as often as possible.

The address for senators and representatives are, respectively:

The Honorable (insert senator’s name)
U.S. Senate
Washington, D.C. 20510

The Honorable (insert representative’s name)
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515

 

You can also find addresses here while there is a recess.

P.S. Here is a website for starting a letter writing campaign.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes. View all posts by holley4734
