5 CALLS is a great, easy way to make your voice heard

by contacting your govt reps and officials on a variety of issues. You choose the issue and presto...you make a call! Schumer, Michael Moore, etc give this source for activism their highest praise.

Each call should take a minute, or less.
While many voters like to email or leave Facebook messages for their representatives, there’s evidence that phone calls are the best way to influence lawmakers. Early this year, House Republicans abandoned an attempt to cripple their ethics watchdog amid a flood of angry phone calls. And last year, a former Congressional staffer said the most effective way to contact a representative was with a phone call.
The new website not only assists voters in making those calls, it also helps them keep track of who they’ve spoken to and which issues were covered.

For people who hate talking on the phone to their own mother, forget chatting with strangers. "5 Calls" provides users with a list of at least five calls they can make each week. It also provides users with sample scripts.

2. Thanks.

I post it periodically since I don't want to be a pain. In fact today I posted it in a reply when someone suggested we all call our reps about Mueller. Spread the word please.
