Have you called your elected representative lately? To get the food and farming system we want, local farmers and everyday citizens like you must speak up. The most useful action you can take on a piece of legislation is to call the main office of the legislator you are seeking to influence, in either Sacramento or Washington DC. They’ll be ready to hear your perspective and take notes. Even a handful of calls on a specific bill may influence their vote.
HOW DO I CONTACT MY REPRESENTATIVE?
It’s easy to find out who represents you. Simply click below and enter your street address to access your representative’s website, phone number and address.
When you call, identify yourself as a constituent if you live in the district. Politicians are most interested in the opinions of their own voters. You may be asked for your zip code. (You can still call legislators who are not your personal representative, particularly if you are trying to influence a committee vote.)
You can also send your legislator an e-mail, or you can e-mail the staffer who is responsible for your issue. One call or email per issue and be clear and succinct!
