Adopt-a-District Guide

Every American deserves to be heard by their elected officials and get answers to their questions, especially when it comes to matters of life and death. If your member of Congress is too ashamed of having voted for a disastrous health care bill to face you and your neighbors, you can invite a more progressive representative from a neighboring district to do what yours won’t: talk about health care and this bill’s implications in your district. 

This guide was created by the Center for American ProgressIndivisibleOFA, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, and the Town Hall Project. It includes key facts, message guidance, and steps for inviting members of Congress to your district—and helps you get to work on hosting an event, tweeting, and bringing district-specific impact numbers into the public conversation.
