From their About page:

5 Calls does the research for each issue, determining out which representatives are most influential for which topic, collecting phone numbers for those offices and writing scripts that clearly articulate a progressive position. You just have to call.

Are we not covering an issue we should be? Please reach out.

Calling Tips

Calls should take less than a minute. You’ll be speaking to a staffer, so make your point clearly so they can tally your opinion correctly. The provided scripts are useful but you can add your own words.

Be respectful. The staffers that pick up the phone aren’t looking to challenge you and you should treat them with the same respect you expect from them, regardless of which party they work for.

Who made 5 Calls?

We’re a group of like-minded volunteers who want to make advocacy accessible. We hope 5 Calls will make it effortless for regular people to have a voice when it’s needed most.

It may not cover every issue I care about, and I may not always feel comfortable calling about an issue I haven’t researched enough myself to form an intelligent opinion. On the other hand, it sure beats sifting through 10 million e-newsletters, calls to action and donation asks per hour.
