How to Contact My Members of Congress There are several ways to contact your members of Congress to communicate about relevant sexual assault issues. Contacting your Member of Congress can be as simple as writing an email or making a telephone call. Members of Congress have local district offices as well as offices in Washington, DC. Complete contact information for these offices should be available on their individual websites.

  • In-Person Meeting
    • You can meet with your members of Congress or their staff in their local district office.
  • By Phone
    • You can call your member of Congress’ DC or district office directly. Their contact number is located on their individual website. Or, you can call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask the operator to connect you with the correct office.
  • By letter:
    • Writing a letter to your member of Congress can be a valuable way to communicate.
