Get off to a great start with your members of Congress 🤝
Let them know you care about climate change
Everyone has two state Senators and one House Representative in Congress. In order for our members of Congress to represent us well, we have to tell them what we want them to do. Now is a great time to introduce yourself and the issues you care about most.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will my Representative listen to me?
Yes! The idea that Elected Representatives don’t listen to their constituents is not true. In reality, Congressional staffers take every call and voicemail and read every email their office receives and pass these onto their member of Congress in regular briefings. Congress works for you and they want to know what their constituents care about. You may receive a generic email in response, but your message was still received loud and clear.
Why do we need a Prefix to our name to email our Senator?
Members of Congress require a prefix for emails that are sent to their office. We acknowledge that the prefixes provided do not encompass all gender identities. Unfortunately it is Congress that sets these prefixes and so we are required to use the ones that are currently accepted by the majority of offices.
How else can I help?
You only need to email once yourself. Then, share this page with any friends, family and coworkers who want to introduce themself to their members of Congress, too!
