How to connect with your representatives
Things will look a little different under the Golden Dome this year (View Capitol Protocols for the 2021 Session). While there may be limited opportunities to advocate in-person this year, your calls, emails and letters to legislators will be essential. Here are some helpful tips:
Get to know your legislators. As elected officials, your legislators represent and often welcome input from constituents. Introduce yourself and let them know what issues matter most to you.
Keep it local. Lead with personal experience and discuss how your community will be impacted by legislative decisions.
Find where your interests align. Protecting our natural resources and connecting people with the outdoors has multiple benefits. Find how those benefits align with the interests of your legislators.
Make your request clear. Respectfully ask that your legislator support or fund a specific program that you care about.
Be courteous. Thank them for their time and service.
