Use the resources below to contact your elected officials. One phone call won't change your Congressperson's opinion, but what about ten thousand phone calls? Everyone should have a voice in their community.
Look up your elected officials by entering your address above or by visiting the Who Reps Me? NYC website.
The "Who Represents Me: NYC" online service is a joint effort between the Center for Urban Research at The Graduate Center / CUNY and the League of Women Voters of the City of New York.
The League provided the primary content featured at the site: updated lists of elected officials and their local contact information. This information was based initially on the League's They Represent You brochure (which you can order here). The League will be updating the information periodically -- and we welcome your updates if you are involved with elected office in New York City. The Center supplemented this information with data from Sunlight Foundation and the Open States project, specifically contact information and photographs of state legislators and congressional representatives.
The League of Women Voters of NYC Voices: Political Advocacy Tool app is designed to make political advocacy easy and to familiarize League of Women Voters members with local, state, and federal political representatives. The app provides a series of monthly alerts aimed at introducing and sustaining support for different political causes along with League of Women Voters positions on current issues. Alerts vary in content, ranging from reminders about voting registration to information about current policy initiatives. By making elected officials easy to reach, the app’s goal is to ensure that all voices are heard during the policy-making process.
After downloading the app from www.tryvoices.com or by using the links above, entering in the necessary iTunes, Android and Google Play information, and quickly inputting the desired address or location by voice and/or type, the app displays current representatives with political affiliation, alongside their phone, email, and Twitter information. Additionally, the app includes several response templates, including phone, email, Twitter and letter examples, provided to help citizens advocate to their representatives easily and making democracy work for all.
