PLANNING YOUR FIRST DISTRICT OFFICE VISIT

Excerpted from indivisibleguide.com/group-toolkit#congressional-district-offices-header

Why visit a district office? Because these visits work. 

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

Visit their site to find out more about their suggestions.

  1. Planning a district office visit.
  2. Decide your “ask” and make it relevant.
  3. Decide who you want to speak with and who from your group will talk.
  4. Prepare talking points so that you have a plan for what to say.
