Hi, I’m Resistbot! What would you like to write to Congress?

Congress needs to pass H.R.1 now. It will increase voting access and has strong bipartisan support.

Sounds great! I’ll deliver that to Senators Brown and Portman, and Representative Beatty. 🤖

Resistbot is the smartest technology to emerge from the disaster that was the 2016 election. No one else even comes close.

Yes, your Letters Count

We’re obsessed with delivery, and work with Congressional and state lawmakers’ offices and the C.M.F. to ensure your messages are received and tallied as quickly as possible. Letters to Congress deliver electronically, letters to state and city officials are delivered via web form, email, fax, or postal mail depending on the office.

…when congressional staff were asked what advocacy factors influence an ‘undecided’ lawmaker, 94% said ‘in-person issue visits from constituents’ would have some or a lot of influence and 92% said ‘individualized email messages’ from constituents would. Despite the haranguing of mainstream media to the contrary, and popular culture insisting that citizen voices are muted in Washington… constituents remain significant factors to legislators’ decision-making.Congressional Management Foundation, 2017 Study
