Hi, I’m Resistbot. I’m going to help you contact your officials. What would you like to tell them?

Congress needs to pass the Keep Families Together Act so children are not separated from their parents at the border.

Sounds great! I’ll deliver that to Senator Brown, Senator Portman, and Representative Ryan.

I’ll submit your letter to your local paper, too!

I’m the only service that allows you to write a letter to your members of Congress, and submit it to your local newspaper at the same time. Send editor and I’ll send the last letter you wrote to your officials to your local paper. Here’s what I’ve gotten published so far.

Yes, your letters will count

My volunteers have talked to Congressional staffers and the Congressional Management Foundation about how to best to be heard:

According to a 2015 C.M.F. survey of almost two hundred senior congressional staffers, when it comes to influencing a lawmaker’s opinion, personalized e-mails, personalized letters, and editorials in local newspapers all beat out the telephone. —Kathryn Schultz, The New Yorker

So keep it personal, unscripted, and be persistent. Here are a few users who’ve gotten letters back or read more frequently asked questions.
