National Write Your Congressman and the Congressional Management Foundation’s Partnership for a More Perfect Union are encouraging citizens to get involved, speak up and share their opinions, now more than ever.
Act now. During the months of March and April, you can find your legislators in their districts for three full weeks seeking constituent opinion (March 21-25 and April 18-29).
Since our nation’s founding, an active and engaged citizenry has been imperative for a healthy democracy. “Our Founding Fathers vision for our country was clearly articulated in the first three words of our Constitution… ‘We the People’,” said Randy Ford, President of National Write Your Congressman. “They wanted the citizens of the United States to get involved. To guide our government. To be responsible Americans.”
A study recently released by CMF’s Partnership for a More Perfect Union, concluded that connecting with your legislator matters now more than ever. The most influential advocacy strategy for swaying an undecided Member of Congress depends on personal communications from constituents. With an election year upon us many law makers are set to act on our collective voices. They need their constituents’ guidance now.
“Share your opinion with your elected officials…whatever that opinion is,” said Mr. Ford. “If you don’t speak up, someone else will be making the decision for you. Your silence could cost you more than you think.”
For almost 55 years, National Write Your Congressman has been encouraging responsible Americans to get involved in their government as our Founding Fathers intended. The non-partisan company is about concerned citizens with real opinions making a real impact.
Launched in 2010, CMF’s Partnership for a More Perfect Union (congressfoundation.org) is dedicated to enriching the relationship between citizens and Congress by comprehensively addressing the deteriorating relationship and communications challenges faced by both sides.
