We encourage you to HAND WRITE a letter to your Texas State Representative and Texas State Senator!
The most significant way to contact your Legislators is by arranging an appointment to see them in their office, next is a HAND WRITTEN letter, followed by a phone call and lastly an email. Please note that Legislators DO NOT use their social media to track constituent opinions. To get your opinion logged in their systems, you MUST visit, write, call or email. They will review these logs when the bill comes before them for a vote.
