Shy People and Introverts, Call Your Reps!

woman makes a phone call despite her fears

The idea of calling members of Congress and other government representatives can be a little intimidating. I know I have to take a deep breath (or three) before calling. Every single time.

As the proposed repeal of Obamacare gets pushed through Congress yet again, it’s a good time for a reminder that calling doesn’t have to be as bad as it sounds. On busy legislative days, you might not even have to talk to a human at all — just be ready to leave a voicemail. Either way, it’s much easier when you know what to expect.

Indivisible has a useful general guide to calling, but I found the post below a while back and it’s perfectly targeted for those of us who are less than comfortable with the process.

Enjoy the read, pass this post along to your shy friends, then make some calls!
