For the rest of this week Congress will be in session and we need your help getting on contact with them. As always we want to build support for Julian and educate the Congress critters about his situation.
We have deployed this same toolkit in the past, but we would like to encourage everyone to use them again to push both State and Federal representatives to demand Julian’s freedom.
I would recommend that everyone request an appointment to meet with your local representatives. Congress will go back into recess on the first day of Julian’s hearing and will not be returning until after it is over. During that time many will be returning to their district to campaign and this is the perfect time to drive this issue home.
Toolbox Resources –
1. https://resist.bot is an online web-tool that send free faxes for you to BOTH state or national Legislators. ResistBot can be used via text messaging, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and/or iMessage to send personally written faxes, as quickly as you can type them.
2. https://www.contactingcongress.org is a website which offers a simple search format for people to find the addresses and phones for all Federal Congressional Representatives. This includes the Phone Number and Address for their local offices inside their district. Engaging the local offices with personal phone calls and hand written letters is the most effective way to capture the attention of Congressfolk and their staff members.
3. https://www.nationalpriorities.org/take-action/contact-your-representative/ is an effective tool which provides links you to the Congressfolk’s Phone Number, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube accounts.
