Meet with Congress on critical human rights issues

All are welcome to participate in Amnesty International USA’s grassroots advocacy. You will be provided with the training, materials, and guidance you need to run a successful lobby visit with your legislators.

2023 Spring Lobby Weeks

Your representative and senators are likely to be in a district office April 3-April 14, making this a good time to meet locally with them. If those dates don’t work for you, you may schedule a meeting with the district office congressional staff any time this Spring. District office congressional staff are based in your state, not in Washington, D.C. All Members of Congress have district offices.
