During a time of physical distancing when policy makers are less able to be out in their districts, it is important that constituents take opportunities to communicate their experience and opinions about the heightened public health and economic challenges. There may be something invigorating about walking up to a pillared building in your best business attire for an appointment with the powerful people you normally just encounter as newsmakers, but we can still approach the halls of power from our homes and congregations.
Now is just as imperative as ever that constituents continue to communicate to their lawmakers their in-district experiences, especially in regards to the current public health and economic challenges. With physical distancing measures still encouraged, the newest ELCA Advocacy resource guides constituents through conducting virtual visits with local, state, and federal lawmakers. View the “Virtual Visits” resource. The resource is also available on the LAMPa website.
