Contact your elected representatives - 95066

Updated on May 5, 2017

I personally want to live my regular old life; I don't want politics to be a part time job or a hobby. Living your day to day and enacting the principles you stand for with your neighbors and the people on the highway or downtown changes lives more than who is in office.

After we have properly voted and earned the right to ask for change in our government, we have only a few ways to effect change. We can't exactly walk up to Sacramento or Washington D.C. and change things all by our lonesomes. We can participate in demonstrations and sign petitions. An extraordinarily effective way to have your voice heard is to see your representatives in person by visiting their offices or attending gatherings where they are present. If you are persistent, your local government and even your house and senate reps might be easier to visit than you think.

But let's be realistic folks, most of us aren't going to do that. I refer back to my comments about regular life. So what then? Call, or write to your representatives and make it personal! Many of them can be contacted on Twitter and Facebook, all can be contacted by email in one way or another and all can be contacted by good old snail mail. A hand-written snail mail letter might be the slowest, but the most meaningful of these methods. Just don't mail them a form letter with your signature unless that is the only way you will ever send anything.

I wanted to make it easier for people to contact their representatives. And so I have gathered a bunch of the names, numbers and addresses for my zip code. Use this information below to do something rather than complain on Facebook and pass around 'alternate' facts that come from whichever side of the aisle you are on.
