|Call Your Elected Officials|
Calling elected officials is best when time constraints make personal visits or emails impossible. Calls are logged in a chart in the elected official’s office. Legislative offices count the number of calls they receive on an issue (pro and con) and share that information with the elected official. A well-timed call can be especially influential when combined with calls from other Health Center advocates on the same issue.
