What if I Can’t Make it to Washington, DC?
If you can’t be in Washington DC, you are encouraged to organize events in your home city from September 16 -18.
Here is how you can play an important role:
- Call and write to your Representative and Senators
- Visit your members of Congress at their district offices. Find your Senators state office here. Find your Representatives district office here.
- Help spread the word about the DC activities via social media and email.
