Poke Your Reps

It’s important to tell our elected representatives what we want them to do, so give them a ‘poke.’ In addition, thanking them is reinforcement when they do something we applaud.

Telephone calls have the greatest impact. A personal email also makes a strong impression.


Research Representatives & Issues

Go to Countable to keep up on legislative bills. You may add your ‘Yea’ or ‘Nay’ and even suggest how you think the bill should be different.

Visit On the Issues for non-partisan information about where political leaders stand on issues.

Go to OpenSecrets.Org to track money in U.S. politics. It will reveal who are the big campaign donors for your elected representative.

Contact Congress

You may easily get the phone number (or get to the website) of any Congress Member by clicking on the links below:

If you prefer to contact a Congress Member via email, click on the Member’s name to go to his or her website. Look for the Contact page, and follow the instructions you find there.

You may also use Quorum to send a personal message to Members of Congress or State Legislators.

If you want to tweet U.S. senators enmasse, a handy alphabetical list of their Twitter IDs is provided below.

JoAnn Chateau

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
