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!

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!

How many apps help with malaise from current affairs? THIS ONE.

Considering how intense and contentious political life in the US is, it can be easy to despair at what we can *actually do.* The number of changes that need to happen in our country (and world) can easily overwhelm even the most positively minded person. And this app helps. It helps take real action and it helps me *stay focused* on the items that are most important to me. The cognitive load of collecting phone numbers, researching the issue for what to say on the phone, and then actually making the call may not take time, but it can feel like a chore, and this app makes it bonkers easy to do the thing without it feeling like a chore. Stop kvetching and *start acting* with this app!
