How do you get your congressmember's attention?

How do you get your elected representative to pay attention? On the next Your Call, we'll talk about the most effective ways to get through to Congress. Do you write letters? Make phone calls? Attend Town Hall meetings? Stage sit-ins? what really works? Next week, House and Senate members will return to their Districts for a month recess. While they're home, how do you make them listen? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. What makes an effective letter or call to a representative's office? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
