1. Find your Representative and 2 Senators online here:
2. Make 3 calls to Capitol Hill. Call your Representative and both of your Senators. Call the Capitol Hill switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Representative and both of your Senators. To each office, you can say something like: "Hi, my name is [name] and I’m from [city, state]. As a United Methodist, I believe family is the bedrock of American society. Please keep families together by supporting the Senate bill, Reuniting Families Act."
3. After you call, make a post on the OnFire wall to let us know that you did. And if you missed International Children's Day, that's ok! Our goal for the week is 20 calls!
CALLING CONGRESS IS NOT INTIMIDATING. You will speak with someone in your Congressperson's office who will make note of your support for the Reuniting Families Act, and that's it! Unless, of course, you'd like to share more.
