1. Call (don’t write, email, or tweet) your local officials and representatives.
Emily Ellsworth, a former staff member for a Utah politician, took to Twitter to explain the best way to get your local representatives to notice your concerns. She claimed that emails, letters, and tweets were easy to ignore “But, phone calls! That was a thing that shook up our office from time. One time, a radio host gave out our district office phone # on air. He was against our immigration policy and told our constituents to call. And they did. All. Day. Long. All I did all day was answer phones. It was exhausting and you can bet my bosses heard about it. We had discussions because of that call to action.”
