How effective is it to speak directly with legislators?


Phone calls and emails to legislators can be effective, but there is nothing more impactful than an in-person visit. Why? Because by making the time to come to St. Paul, you convey to your legislators that you care about the decisions they make on your behalf. This matters to legislators, because you’re the one who puts them in office. Your investment in them and your concern about the issues conveys that you will also vote against them if they don’t make those issues a priority.
