Tips & Strategies for making calls to your reps

1. Call a state or district office first.

2. Leave a voicemail. If voicemail is full, press "0." This will typically connect you to a receptionist who may be able to take your message or transfer you to a voicemail that isn't full.

3. Call the national office, if you can't get through. Or to see if you can get a real person.

4. Be prepared to give your name and your location. You can refer to yourself as a constituent, as per the script, and they might not ask.

5. Note that the operator is likely using some kind of form to mark your call, the goal is to generate a high volume of calls that require the operator to check off individual boxes. That means it's critical to name your issues specifically and not just say something like "oppose Trump."

ON APRIL 24, 2018, WE WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS.

In 2017, more than one million people around the world gathered to defend science for the common good and its role in policy and society. Since then, science has continued to face increasing threats at the federal, state, and local levels.

But science will not be silenced — and it's time to unite again. This year, let's come together to send a message: we will hold our elected and appointed officials responsible for enacting equitable, evidence-based policies that serve all communities.

Let's use our collective voices to send a powerful message to policymakers and those running for office in 2018 - over the phone, at town halls and community meetings, and at the ballot box. We march for many reasons, but unite to defend science -- because science belongs to us all.
