Staying With It

Engagement involves more than just staying in touch with elected officials. You can also:

  • Volunteer. National, state and community organizations can accomplish great things – but not without help. Volunteer with Common Cause or a local community group. Your time and talents can make a valuable difference and you'll feel good knowing that you're doing your part.
  • Write Letters to the Editor. Policymakers at every level follow letters’ columns and op-ed pieces in the local papers. A thoughtful and informative letter to the editor can keep an important issue square in the public spotlight. Remember to keep it short and to the point.
  • Join in a Community Activist or Other Grassroots Action. Rallies, peaceful demonstrations, petition drives and door-to-door canvassing help build momentum on important issues.
  • Vote. Election Day is the one time when we’re all able to make a difference in our government. Encourage others to vote and consider volunteering on Election Day at your local polling place.
