Who To Call: Senate and House Reps

Say it Rah-shay By Nov 15, 2016 1 Comment

I usually don’t post about politics because I am not political, because I don’t know much about politics,  because [fill in some other excuse], because I am scared of what someone somewhere might say.

But then:


I am done with worrying about speaking softly, offending people, being looked at as Angry Black Woman. I am angry but I am also going to be educated Black Woman, taking time to learn more and not rely on sound bites, press clips and click bait which runs rampant on social media.

Hear me roar.

This week I am making calls and writing letters. The election is over but we can still make our feelings known. Former Congressional staff member Emily Ellsworth offered this advice on the Twitter for how to get your representative to take notice and hear you out.

The link to the article can be found on the web site attn.

    A great resource to find all your elected officials (in the Greater Philadelphia Region) can be found at the Committee of Seventy website and is called The Online Citizen’s Guide: http://guide.seventy.org/
