How do I contact my congressional representative?

You can find your congressional representative through our Action Letters Page: scroll down to the “Find your Elected Officials”, enter your zip code and hit go. From there you will be taken to your action alert page specifically for your area based on zip code. You will see current action alerts, where to contact your elected officials, a listing of the current president and congress for your district/county/city/state, key senatorial votes and how your representative voted on that issue.

What is the purpose of legislative action letters and where can I find more information on them?

Action letters are form letters generated by the Government Affairs staff explaining FMA’s positions on key current issues; we encourage FMA members to tailor these letters to express an even stronger message to their respective Members of Congress. Action alerts are sent via email to members from Government Affairs staff. For more detail and a listing of current action letters, please visit the Legislative Action Center.

Where can I find the latest action alert?

Grassroots efforts are the most crucial part of FMA’s legislative operation. Action letters, phone calls, faxes and e-mails from FMA members to their representatives in Congress are the true source of the Association’s political power and influence.

Every time an FMA member writes a letter, makes a phone call or sends an e-mail to an elected official, he or she is making a certified deposit of political capital in the advocacy bank of FMA. Through direct contact with congressional offices as well as the strong support of an active political action committee, we can continue to keep our voice heard loud and clear throughout the halls of Congress.
