- We suggest when contacting your representatives that you not email them.
Instead, call their offices on the telephone. You'll speak to a real person, and have much

CONTACT THE MEDIA
- Just like the advice above, it is better to write or call individual editors and
reporters. Tell them what is on your mind. Suggest story ideas to them.
Tell them how family law is destroying your life, or the lives of you family. They
are always looking for a fresh take on an issue. Give it to them! Follow the
procedures listed in the notes for contacting elected officials above.
