— Abraham Lincoln

PLANNING YOUR FIRST DISTRICT OFFICE VISIT

(Excerpted from The Indivisible Guide)

Why visit a district office? Because these visits work. 

As they discuss in the Indivisible Guide, every Member of Congress has one or more local offices, but constituents very rarely visit them.

  • Planning a district office visit.
  • 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.
