Below is a link to the 5 Calls app in the Google Play Store. The is an app for Android phones that can not only assist you in calling your MoC’s about particular issues, it will track who you’ve spoken to and what issues were covered. It will also suggest other issues you might want to investigate.

5 Calls App – Google Play Store

A Huffington Post Article about the app said:

5 Calls encourages progressives to make five phone calls in five minutes on key topics such as Cabinet appointments, the border wall and immigration. Just enter a zip code, and the left-leaning website will provide a list of names, phone numbers and even short scripts.

“We do the research for each issue, determining out which representatives are most influential for which topic, collecting phone numbers for those offices and writing scripts that clearly articulate a progressive position,” the website states. “You just have to call.”

Each call should take a minute, or less.

While many voters like to email or leave Facebook messages for their representatives, there’s evidence that phone calls are the best way to influence lawmakers. Early this year, House Republicans abandoned an attempt to cripple their ethics watchdog amid a flood of angry phone calls. And last year, a former Congressional staffer said the most effective way to contact a representative was with a phone call.
