Meet With Your Congress Member This Month

Here's a Guide to Visiting Your Congress Member

The Resolution of Inquiry, H. Res. 375, now has 40 co-sponsors, and we have the month of August in which to raise that total. If passed, the Resolution will require the White House and the State Department to turn over all information related to communication with officials of the UK between January and October of 2002, the period of the Downing Street documents.

Both progressives and moderates are among the 40 already co-sponsoring. Many more congress members will co-sponsor if a group of their constituents schedules a meeting with them at their district office, while they're home for the month of August, and asks them. All the information you need to do so is here.

Democracy for America (DFA) has organized its members to schedule at least 67 meetings with congress members during August in at least 26 states (AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, IA, IL, KS, MA, MD, MI, MO, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, TX, VT, WI). These meetings will focus on requesting hearings on the Downing Street Memos and whether the President misled us into war. One particular request will be that each congress member co-sponsor H. Res. 375.

To get involved with one of these or to organize an additional meeting in your congressional district, attend your local DFA Meetup tomorrow evening, Wednesday, August 3.

Ven Neralla from Rep. Barbara Lee's office, and David Swanson from will be at the Meetup in Washington, D.C., at Ben's Chili Bowl on U Street at 7 p.m.

Members of the coalition, including Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and, are encouraging their members to take part in these DFA Meetups.

If you don't find a Meetup in your area, then visit PDA and choose your state from the dropdown menu in the upper left, and look for a local chapter you can work with on this.

New T-shirts, hats, buttons, stickers, mugs, and other gear are available here, and by buying them you support our coalition both financially and by spreading the word.
