Grassroots Activism: Materials for Congressional field visits and other actions

As we watch things unfold in Washington D.C., it is critical that our message on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act be communicated to our House and Senate members, as well as the White House. Any cuts to these programs are unwanted, unnecessary, and will do great harm to all of us. Now more than ever, we need to let our representatives know that they will be held accountable on these issues.

To get our elected representatives to commit to vetoing all cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, Social Security Works has created several tools that will help engaged Americans to effectively meet with their House members and Senators. These include guides for grassroots activists, tips and talking points for effective meetings, and resources about these critical programs.

Please join us in making sure the American people are heard by their elected officials on these critical issues!
