Global Laser Talk January 2017

Requesting a First 100 Days Meeting with Your Member of Congress

Hello! My name is __________, and I am a constituent. I’m calling to schedule a meeting with the senator/representative here in state/district.

I volunteer with RESULTS, a national advocacy organization that works on poverty. We work on education, health, and economic opportunity, and we have a significant presence in the state/district.

We want to talk to the congressman/woman about working together to address issues of poverty. We know that he/she is very interested in ____________ (choose an issue to which the member of Congress is sympathetic). We would like to meet during the first 100 days of the new Congress as there is much we must do now to ensure continued progress on ending extreme poverty.

We’ll come to the meeting prepared with some specific issues we want to discuss and relevant background materials. What is your first available date?
