Contact your state and federal representatives

Text your zip code to 520-200-2223 to receive a text with your Congressional and State Representatives contact numbers. See “How to get through to Congress” and learn how to be most effective when calling. Find your representative: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

Use Resistbot

Text “resist” to 50409. Provide your name, zip code, and a message to send to your senators. Resistbot will format it to look professional and fax it to both of your senators. Want to fax your representatives as well? Provide your full address.

Attend town hall meetings, city council meetings, rallies and events



Write a letter to the editor of your local paper



Get to know your local School Board and Join Your PTA

Whether you have kids in school or not, your school board sets policies that directly affect immigrant families.

Join a voting league or political organization

A non-partisan group like the League of Women Voters is a good way to get informed, or choose a political group that aligns with your values.

Volunteer with your local representative through their office

Find a local politician who represents the change you want to see in your community, contact their office to figure out how you can get involved. Your state, city and county have party headquarters where you can volunteer. They often have opportunities for stay-at-home digital activism.

Encourage letters of solidarity and support

Ask your school’s principal or school board, city and county council members, or any organization or group that you are part of to publish a letter of support or solidarity.
