If you’re looking for ways to get involved in the fight for racial justice in the United States, making your voice heard by contacting your state and local elected officials is an easy, effective way to make a concrete difference.

Not sure what to say on the phone or in your email to your elected reps?

Before using a template or pre-populated email, you should always thoroughly review the demands it advocates. Think about, for example, how they match up with (or depart from) demands being voiced by black activists and organizers in your area.

Always be sure to edit and add your own input where applicable.
