Ppealing to Your Congressional Representative
Assume you are upset about an issue, and you want your representative or senator to know your position. Choose a national issue about which you feel strongly. Examples of topics include student loans, social security depletion, human rights in other countries, federal safety regulations for employees, environmental protection, affirmative action, gun control, taxation of married couples, the federal deficit, or some other issue discussed in Congress. Write a letter explaining your concerns.
