How to contact your representatives

Submitting testimony to elected officials is a powerful part of our advocacy work. Hearing the stories and personal narratives of educators is an important component of moving elected officials to take action on the issues educators care about.

You don’t have to be an expert! The most effective testimony is concise, specific, and personal: 

  • it should fit on one single-spaced page
  • clearly identify your support for or opposition to the bill in question
  • make an emotional impact

An emotional story will “stick” with your audience more effectively than just the dry facts and figures.
