We need everyone to Tweet, call, write, or visit their legislators. . Afraid to Tweet? Call them. Can’t Tweet during the day? Use a program such as Hootsuite which will schedule your Tweets.
Here is a list of Twitter names we have been compiling. If you learn of more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
