Take Action: August 5, 2017 Effective town halls

Congress is on recess and members should be back in their home communities. It’s our chance to be heard, preferably in person. You can check TownHallProject.com to see if your MoCs are holding town halls in your communities. If they are, great! Some best practices for attending a town hall here.
 
Some Members of Congress will hold town halls at inconvenient times, or else tele-town halls, if they’re seeking to avoid constituents. Robert Reich has a couple of quick videos about why we shouldn’t let them get away with this: here and here.
 
If our MoCs are not holding town halls AT ALL, call or write to make sure their staff know that you want them to schedule some! Or host your own town hall and send your questions to the press.
