It is important to send messages to Congress using every tool we have.
While phone calls, letters and emails are still important, Congressional staffers are often too busy to tally the number of electronic correspondence they receive from citizens concerned about certain legislation. Many members of Congress use sources like govtrack.us to track the trending of constituent opinion on legislation, so online opinions on such sites can make a difference. Use this messaging tool to join other constituents in their support of the SHIELD Act (H.R. 668).
The “widget” on the left side of this page above (titled “Comments Sent to Congress”) is a live-updated stream of comments posted by people who support H.R. 668 (the SHIELD Act) and have written to their Representatives to ask for support of this important bill.
To add your own comment to the stream and ask for your Representatives to support H.R. 668, click here to go to the PopVox.com web site. When sending a message to members of Congress, PopVox.com allows you to choose whether or not your comment will be posted online with your name or anonymously–the message to your Representative will have your name on it, but the comment on the web site would be anonymous. It’s your choice, and your voice.
