No matter your political affiliation, separating families is inhumane and unacceptable. There is no law that requires families to be torn apart, it’s a Trump Administration policy. If you are looking for ways to help, here is an easy and non-intimidating way to call your representatives.

Call your Representatives

Calling has a greater impact than emailing or posting on social media. But calling can be intimidating, it was for me, until I discovered the 5 calls app. It is so easy to use that I had to share. This issue is so important and every little bit counts. Here’s how the app streamlines the process:

Select your issue and read a brief summary

Relevant Rep/Senators are listed at the bottom of the summary page

Click on one of the representatives for the phone number as well as a script if you need a starting point. Here’s what will happen: you call, a staffer answers, you read your script, the staffer asks for your name and address/zip (to verify you are a constituent), staffer assures you they will pass along your message, you thank them for their time. Done!

There are so many different ways to help, please feel free to share.
