Call-in days are an excellent way to organize the community (e.g. parishes, family members, groups of friends and colleagues) to express concern or support on a bill or issue to elected officials. In the Archdiocese of Chicago, parishes and individuals have been holding call-in days for years, often inviting parishioners to stay after mass to make phone calls or scheduling specific days for people to call from home.
Resources for organizing call-in days (e.g. sample call scripts) follow below.

"Prudently and honorably let them fight against injustice and oppression, the arbitrary rule of one man or one party, and a lack of tolerance. Let them devote themselves to the welfare of all sincerely and fairly, indeed with charity and political courage." ~Gaudium et Spes, The Church in the Modern World
