How To Contact Senators and other Reps. VOICE your NATIVE OPINION



Our elected representatives in Sacramento and in Washington D.C. need to be made aware of this situation. Letters, phone calls and faxes are the most effective - emails just get lost

The point is that they are elected to address our concerns, if they hear from enough people, they will become aware. We are the voters - we have the power --
Yes this may cost a few stamps and long distance phone calls --

Another option is to find and join one of your local Democratic clubs and put the issue to them, and ask if they will take action.
Find clubs here:

Our California U.S. Senators are Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein --
Contact their field offices, (not the D.C. Offices)

Ask for hearings and investigations into the civil rights abuses and enforcement of the Native American Civil Rights Act

FInd your U.S. Congressmen in Washington DC, and your State legislators in Sacto here:

http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/  type in your zip code -- then click on 'contact' when the reps name comes up it will give you mailing addresses and phone numbers
for congressmen - contact the local field office - it takes ages for anything to be read as far as mail in DC phone calls to DC would be okay - but letters take too much time.

For the state representatives, contact the local field offices and their Sacto offices

I would also suggest contacting state attorney general Jerry Brown's Sacramento office

Attorney General's Office
California Department of Justice
Attn: Public Inquiry UnitP.O. Box 944255 Sacramento, CA 94244
(916) 322-3360 or
(Toll-free in CA)
(800) 952-5225

Thanks Becky and hey, a postcard is less expensive, but can be effective
