Call, write, email, show up. Place letters to the editor. Find a mic and grab it. First move yourself, then move the movement.

(*One tip: if you want great access to contact information that is not easily available, there is a great app for the iPhone called Congress+ ($4.99). Many of you can do this work from your damn pocket! There is really no excuse)
