Many of us are angry and despairing at the political landscape, especially with the recent unprecedented threats to democracy itself in the United States.
Let's pool our brains and amplify our influence! Letters and phone calls to our elected officials make an impact, even if they don't always do what we ask, since they're ultimately concerned about "reelection, reelection, reelection".
Especially with help from our friends, it's not difficult to write letters calling for specific actions and telling powerful stories. We can share talking points, drafts, and letters we've sent, as well as problems we encounter and replies we get.
(The title refers to the U.S. system, but you're welcome to share how you're communicating with your elected officials in any country.)
If you read this group and haven't joined it, please consider joining! It'll encourage other AN members to be more politically active.
