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.

Instant Delivery that Counts

We’re obsessed with delivery and work with the C.M.F. and lawmakers to ensure offices quickly tally your messages.

…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

Here’s some resisters who’ve gotten letters back too!
