Members of Congress collectively receive more than 200 million emails and letters every year
[1]. However constituents often forget that policy changes develop on an individual level. Pennsylvania State Representatives and Senators are our voices in Washington. Enduring advocacy may pay off for you, your family and your community.

The way we can directly affect change is by inundating the inboxes and answering machines of policy makers with our voices. Personal messages from constituents, whether in the form of a letter, a phone call, an email or even a tweet can strongly influence a legislator.

helloYou will be most effective contacting legislators who represent you directly. Unsure about who represents you in the PA House of Representatives and the State Senate? You can find your legislator’s contact information—phone number, email and address—along with their bios and committee assignments on the Pennsylvania General Assembly website. You can also use the hashtags #PASenate and #PAHouse to encourage others to follow your example.

Please take the time today to contact our policy makers. It is not enough to talk with friends and families about your political ideals—we need our representatives to listen. They will only hear us if we lend our voices.
