Write to your Legislators

Find National, State, and Local Legislative Contacts

You used be able to enter your zip code and write to all of your legislators with one click. This included the President; U.S. Senators and Representatives; State Governor, Senators, and Representatives; and Local Government leaders. You could go on to find Pennsylvania officials and agency contacts, issues being debated and action items, as well as a Media Guide with contact information for television stations, newspapers, and radio stations.

This was all provided by Congress.org, a public service of Capitol Advantage, powered by the award-winning Capwiz™ grassroots advocacy solution. For some reason, this is no longer valid with the 2012 redistricting. The website is now a mere shadow of what it once was.

Now, if you would like to find and contact your legislators by your zip code or address, there are 2 links you can use:

1. Federal Legislative Contacts provided by OpenCongress.org  

OpenCongress is a free and open-source project of the Participatory Politics Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to increase civic engagement. The nonprofit Sunlight Foundation is the founding and primary supporter of OpenCongress.

2. Pennsylvania State Legislative Contacts provided by Pennsylvania General Assembly
