Advocating for legislation doesn’t only happen in Washington, D.C., but back home in the district as well, especially during district work days when Congress is not in session. All senators and representatives in Congress have offices in their state or home district where constituents can meet with their representatives. Many Members of Congress also often host local events like town halls or coffee conversations. These are excellent opportunities to speak with the Member or their staff about why the PACT Act is so important.
