Another mechanism for contacting legislators. Text "Resist" to 50409. The bot asks for information to determine whose constituent you are, and then creates "daily letters to Congress" based on the messages. The site says that Congressional staffers say that they receive--and read--Resistbot messages, and that (brief!) personal messages are more influential than form letters.

BTW I read about it in the latest issue of re:act, a consistently excellent publication that I recommend as a good use of your limited time. The URL is, and if you have items to submit, they go to

Thanks for flagging this up. The Re:act newsletter has come up with some really great resources since we first posted about it, hasn't it?

Finally used resistbot fr the first time and I'm in love. It is so easy and I feel for the first time since the phone lines have been getting jammed like I'm getting through.
