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.

Visit their site to find out more about their suggestions.

  • 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.
