"The app will even dial your representative for you. It's so cool!" - Michael Moore

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

Turn your passive participation into active resistance. Facebook likes and Twitter retweets can’t create the change you want to see. Calling your Government on the phone can.

Spend 5 minutes, make 5 calls.

Calling is the most effective way to influence your representative. Read more about why calling works.

5 Calls:

- Provides phone numbers and scripts so calling is quick and easy

- A background on why each issue is important so you can judge how important each one is to you

- Uses your location to find your local representatives so your calls have more impact

- Keeps track of who you've called about each issue so you can make your way down the list

TOGETHER WE’VE MADE over 2 MILLION CALLS!

Streamlines advocacy brilliantly

The beauty of this app is that it identifies important, up-to-date issues that citizens may want to advocate for, then, if you click on the topic that interests you to contact your representatives about, it shows you exactly who to contactIn your state, your specific representatives, and you click on the photo of their face/name, and their phone number populates. You touch their phone number and make the call. You can also report your calls so they keep track of how many people have contacted their reps. I've never found a more helpful or streamlined resource for making political advocacy easy. I highly recommend this app!
Developer: could you please make another app called "1 Rep"with the same information? Only as a matter of choice architecture... the thought of making five calls often feels like more than I have time for, so I skip some days. If the mental framework was that I had to do only one thing, one action to contact one representative, and then feel like I succeeded rather than fell short of calling five, I'm sure I could motivate myself to do it seven days a week.
Thanks for the fabulous, highly effective resource!

A great necessity and easy to use!

I have been using your app for about 4 years now. Thank you for the work your doing it is so important for everyone to use this app. You make it easy for people like me to call and state the issues. The hardest part is picking the issues I should call on. You have so many that need a voice, please don’t stop what your doing. You are helping the every day citizens to get involved and have a voice! I wish you had the phone numbers of our local state government.
A lot more damage starts at the state legislators offices. It would be nice to know what bills they are quietly trying to push through. Issues like districts being drawn in Republican’s favor. In a lot of districts it’s almost impossible to get a Democrat elected because of the way the district lines are made. Abortion rights is another big issue that’s controlled locally. I love what your organization has done already. I would love to see an app that deals with each of the states local officials. Thanks for all you’ve done and are doing.

Very Helpful!

This app is making it so much easier to exercise my first amendment right and be sure that I am on the record with my representatives. If we don’t hold them accountable tell me who will. Love the links to relevant sites (ie. Campaign Zero, NY Times article explaining advantage of calling over emailing) and the tips are invaluable. I would love to see some augmentations (ie. an email check box, phone message check box, live conversation check box) as it is a bit of a challenge to keep these straight. Also would love a free-text or add to database option for my local government contact info (sheriff, city council members etc.) as well as topics (ie. Recent paid vacation for local sheriff union representative enticing resigned Buffalo officers to come down here, he would have their back).Thank you for this app-amazing!
