Read “Call the Halls”, Follow Author Emily Ellsworth

This OTYCD entry originally posted in January 2017.


Read Call the Halls, a guide to effectively contacting your members of Congress, and follow its author, former Utah Congressional aide Emily Ellsworth.


Within days of the election, Ellsworth was tweeting advice on what worked and didn’t work when talking to your Congressional delegation. That led her to write Call the Halls, which you can download here (if you can give a donation, please do; if you can’t, no worries–she deliberately created a free option):


She seems to be the first to stress the fact that calling is the best way to speak to your Congressional reps. This blog would not exist without her and her early work.
