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.
