Take the time to contact your representatives

In times like these I think it is important for people to know how to contact their representatives and senators.
Everyone has two state senators, and one district representative. One of the easiest ways to do this is use an advocacy group that is aligned with your beliefs. I believe that we can end global poverty, so I send emails through Borgenproject.org. A good advocacy group will have direct links to bills and legislature that they are lobbying for and most have prewritten emails that can be sent easily to your leaders.
Here in Cheney and Spokane our representative is Cathy McMorris Rogers. Our senators are Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell.
Your representatives read what you say. It can take as little as five people emailing or calling your senator or congressperson to get them to act on legislation that’s in the works. Especially in such politically demanding times it is important for people to be communicating their concerns and interests to the people who are making the policies.
