Ratings and Reviews
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!
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!
Great tool to be heard
Very useful and efficient. It would be nice to be able to pre-edit the suggested scripts, but using those is optional anyway. You still get auto-dialing of your specific lawmakers, which is a big help. (Tip: zip codes and auto-location stopped working for me. Entering a full street address works, though.)
The issues and scripts are frequently updated, offering a wide range of topics that centrists and progressives will want to support. Only the farthest-right lunatic fringe are likely to object to the reasonable facts and issues this app contains. It does contain certain issues I care less about than others—which is why you pick and choose what’s worth your call. Don’t forget to tap “More Issues” to see all the current offerings.
