Take Action 

From time to time the CAPA leadership will encourage citizen action (emails/letters/phone calls/lobby meetings) with legislators or public officials. We will provide some background for this request for action and usually a tentative “script” on this page.

Contact Resources:

You can identify your state and federal elected representatives by putting your home address in the search bar below, clicking confirm and it will take you to a page with the officials for your district: http://www.elections.il.gov/districtlocator/addressfinder.aspx

When you know your Illinois state senator and/or representative’s name you can go to: Illinois General Assembly at: www.ilga.gov/ and go to the house or senate to get their phone numbers for both District and Springfield offices; their email addresses and snail mail addresses.

For additional information on your federal legislators, see here (http://www.house.gov/ , http://www.senate.gov/index.htm ).

We engage our elected officials regularly on legislation pertinent to the issues we follow. We believe our voice matters and that the more they hear from us the more likely they are to vote according to our needs and wishes.
