Meeting with your local congressional representative is an important way to not only engage them on a bill or issue, but to also thank them for their support and leadership. Face-to-face interaction can create a space for healthy dialogue and have a significant impact on the representative’s perspective on an issue.
The meetings, which can be done individually or as a group, can be scheduled by contacting your representative's local office. Several resources to help you plan your visit follow below:
