Each of us has a personal story—in fact, we have many. We tell different parts of our story at different times, for different reasons, in different ways. One reason that we share our personal story is to inform and influence others, including our government representatives.

Our legislators depend upon the personal stories of their constituents in order to create laws that accurately reflect the needs and experiences of the diverse citizens and communities whom they are tasked with representing. As is illustrated in the chart below, studies have proven that personalized messaging to lawmakers is the most effective way to advocate for change.

This #TakeActionTuesday, share how you’ve been impacted by the issues that matter most to you by following the template below when contacting your legislators. Then, visit AIT’s action center to contact your representatives today!
