PLANNING YOUR FIRST DISTRICT OFFICE VISIT
Why visit a district office? Because these visits work.
Every Member of Congress has one or more local offices, but constituents very rarely visit them. Remember, they are elected to represent us, so it's our job to let them know their constituents need and what issues matter to us. When planning a district office visit, think through the best use of your time and that of your rep's staff.
- Decide your “ask” and make it relevant.
- Decide who you want to speak with and who from your group will talk.
- Prepare talking points so that you have a plan for what to say.
