Meet Us. Ask Us.

We are building a network of local communities in every district – communities of 30,000 to 60,000 people – to bring Congress closer to home, so we can effect more change by meeting with each other and with our representatives.

Are you interested in completing polls to prioritize changes you'd like to see in your community?

Are you interested in meeting with your congressional representative?

Participate

Participating in your community will generally be a combination of attending meetings and participating online - and that all starts here. Once you find your Congressional Community, you'll be instantly connected to all the discussions your community has to offer. As a participant of your community, you’ll be expected to be civil and respectful as you engage with your fellow community members, regardless of difference in opinion.

There are two ways to participate in your Congressional Community - online, and in person.

We are in the first phase of launching CCs -- building up community membership. Your joining will send a message to your member of Congress that we want them to meet with us and ask about things.

You always get to choose how involved you want to be. Perhaps, it's just including yourself in the prospective survey pool. At your option, you'll be able to discuss Congressional actions.

Online, you can participate in statistical polls to give your community a sense of what issues you find important, as well as discuss Congressional actions, policies, or laws with your community members on message boards. In person, you can attend events planned by your Congressional Community, where you can directly discuss with your community members issues affecting your community, city, and state - as well as how best to communicate these issues to your representatives.

Champion

Champions work together with the Congressional Communities Team in order to do outreach into their communities and get people involved.They're expected to be respectful and encourage nonpartisan values among their fellow participants. While a Champion may be responsible for recruiting new people into the community, they are expected to notemploy partisan, racial, gendered, ableist etc. bias when doing so.

As strong believers in our mission here at Congressional Communities, Champions serve as a resource for the movement to both existing participants in their communities, as well as people who are interested in joining. Those interested in becoming a Champion are strongly encouraged to contact us in order to work together with us on how you may best serve and reach your Congressional Community.
