Email Legislators

It only takes a couple minutes to send messages to lawmakers. If you don’t know who your state legislators are, click “find your legislator.” For some calls to action, you should include an email to the Governor, the House Speaker, Senate President Pro Tempore or an entire committee to let them know your thoughts. If you click the committee buttons below, you will be able to easily email an entire committe all at once.

What should I write?

Check our blog or social media for current calls to action. We try to help you by providing the key points, bill numbers and who to contact. Here is a basic template you can use for writing an email to an elected official:
