Contact your officials in two minutes.

Resistbot is a chat bot for civic engagement. Send it a message to get started!

The Easiest Way to Be Heard

Send the word resist or one of dozens of keywords to the bot on Apple Messages, WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, Telegram or by text to the phone number 50409. Answer the questions the bot texts you, and in two minutes you’ll have sent a letter to your elected officials; found your polling place or events in your community; or one of many other features.

(Resistbot is a free service, but message and data rates may apply if you use the service over SMS. Message frequency varies. Text STOP to 50409 to stop all messages. Text HELP to 50409 for help.)

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 Rubio and Scott, and Representative Castor. 🤖

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