When Congress takes a break for the August recess, it’s the perfect time for you to advocate at home! Congress works in their districts (where you live) during this time making it an opportunity you can’t pass up!
Each August we email you a weekly call to action. This can range from doing research on your members to setting up a time to meet with your member of Congress in person while they’re home. We give you things to do each week so you can practice your advocacy skills.
Getting involved during August Recess is a perfect way to get started if you’ve never advocated. If this isn’t your first rodeo with advocacy, it’s an amazing way to follow-up.
How to Participate
It’s never too early to get started, even if it’s not August yet! Make sure you’re signed up as an advocate. This means you’ll get notified when we launch the campaign in July.
If you’ve already signed up, get a jump start and look up your members of Congress. Research where they stand on important issues – especially our legislative priorities.
And be on the lookout for more emails from us… we have ways to advocate all year. If you’d like to do more, we have many ways to join the fight.
