Calling Congress and encouraging others to do the same is a really effective way of generating a response on issues of great public concern, and there are going to be many of those in the coming years.  Though it's also possible to contact your representatives via email, snail mail, and social media, phone calls are by far the most effective way to get action quickly and make your voice heard.  Below are the numbers for House and Senate leadership, as well as links that will help you get in touch with your own representatives.
