Making Your Voice Heard: How To Work With Congress
Aims to help citizens get off the sidelines and constructively express opinions to federal officeholders. The booklet offers practical tips on how to communicate with Congress, with features such as "Ten Ways to Contact Your Member of Congress" and "Making Your Case Effectively: Some Do's and Don'ts." It discusses how citizens can amplify their voice by connecting with interest groups and political parties, and by using new tools of "cyber-democracy" available on the Internet. Sprinkled through the booklet are vignettes on "People Who Made a Difference" — average citizens who got involved in the political process and ended up making a big impact on government policy.
