  1. IMPORTANT: DO NOT just send e-mails to politicians!!

    DO NOT JUST SEND E-MAILS. They are far LESS effective than you can ever imagine. I worked in the MA legislature for six years (before you ask, it was for an A+ rated, GOAL endorsed politician). Many reps and senators won't even see the emails as they will get passed on to a staff member and...
