“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.”
According to the Indivisible Guide, Members of Congress (MoC) are likeliest to respond to, “Concrete asks that entail a verifiable action — vote for a bill, make a public statement, etc.”
In order to be able to make concrete asks, as an organization, we need to educate ourselves on the issues, and know where we stand before we can make specific asks of our elected officials. And we need to know where our MoC stands on the issue.
Sometimes we’ll be calling to thank our MoC for their position on an issue. Sometimes we will be calling to oppose specific legislation, either way, we need to be informed.
