Congress will vote on the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement TOMORROW, Wednesday, October 12th. So, even if you’ve called once, twice, or more before, your members of Congress need to hear from you NOW. Follow the simple instructions below to make your call today!
Step 1—Call the capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to your representative or one of your senators. (They all need to hear from you!) If you don’t know who represents you, click here to look it up by entering your zip code. Then pick up the phone and dial!
Step 2—Ask to speak to the senator or representative. If you can’t speak to him/her, ask for the aide that works on trade and labor issues. Keep your message simple. Just say:
“My name is ____. I am a constituent calling to urge Representative/Senator ____ to take a stand for human and labor rights by publicly opposing the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement.”
