How to Talk To Representatives

Here’s a short video that gives you advice on what to say.

Something is coming in the future that will coordinate efforts to talk to politicians.

But for now, you can go talk to your elected representatives on your own.

Introduction

Politicians care about what their constituent thinks because constituents vote for them.  A politician will support legislation if it keeps them in office by your votes.  We can push medical freedom legislation by getting constituents (you) to have one-on-one meetings with your elected representatives.  If enough people do this, the politician will start taking political action to change the laws.

Privacy

If you don’t want anyone to know you’re involved in political action, then no one needs to know that you’re talking directly to your politician.  Your employer, family, co-workers, don’t have to know.  You don’t have to worry about being attacked for supporting medical freedom because you can do it privately.  Of course, getting more people to also visit your local politician helps immensely.

What is a constituent?

constituent  :  A resident of a district or member of a group represented by an elected official.

A politician only cares about their constituent.  You have to physically live in the legislative district assigned to the politician.  If you don’t live in that politician’s legislative district, you basically don’t exist.  So it’s important you know who your assigned politicians are.

Types of Politicians

We want to change State and Federal laws.

To change Federal law, we have to talk to:

  • US Senators
  • US Representatives

To change State law, we have to talk to:

  • State Senators
  • State Representatives

Overall Process

  1. Find out who are your Federal and State representatives.
  2. Get their contact information and their office addresses.
  3. Call to get a meeting with the representative or one of their staff members.
  4. Tell us when your meeting is scheduled.
  5. Prepare yourself for the meeting.
  6. During the meeting, cover points from the talking paper.
  7. Give us feedback of how it went.

Who Am I Going to Visit With?

There are 4 types of representatives that you need to talk to:

  1. US Senator
  2. US Representative
  3. State Senator
  4. State Representative

If you live inside of the geographic jurisdiction of a representative, then you are considered a constituent.  This means that you can vote for them.  Politicians care greatly about their constituents because they work for you and depend on your vote.

Who Are My Representatives

  1. Go here:  https://whoaremyrepresentatives.org/
  2. Enter your address.
  3. Look for anyone who is either:
    • US Senator
    • US Representative
    • State Senator
    • State Representative

Districts

Each one of these has a different map of the various districts describing the representative’s geographic jurisdiction.

 

What Do I Say?

  1. Have a personal story that ties you to the medical freedom mission.  Perhaps your brother died from a faulty vaccine, or your neighbor lost his job because he wouldn’t get the COVID-19 vaccine, or maybe the lockdowns shut down your business.  You can always find something that involves real people.
  2. Tell them what the problem is.  Usually the problem is that there is a lack of law that prevents government and corporations from imposing mandates, vaccines, lockdowns, and other restrictions.
  3. Show them the MFA Framework model legislation.  You don’t need to show them the entire document, you can just pick your favorite Articles in the MFA (e.g. “Employee Protections”) and propose that as an example of the law that needs to be passed in your State, or at the Federal level.
