Contact your legislator
You can write a letter or send an email to your Senator or Representative. Check out our outreach templates below to help you write your letter. Your letter should include information about:
- The issue you are advocating for
- The organization, program, or community you are representing (f you are)
- The community involved
- How supportive legislation can make a difference
**If you are writing about a particular bill, explain how that specific bill will positively affect your program, organization, or community.
Meet with your legislator
Contact your legislator and ask to schedule an appointment. These meetings may be very short and may be with staff rather than the elected official. Need help preparing for your meeting? Check out this resource guide created by the National Diaper Bank Network for helpful tips!
Follow up after your meeting by sending a brief thank you note. Feel free to use our guideline template for drafting your thank you letter.
