How to Connect with your Representatives

How to connect with your representatives

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.
