Take Advantage of Congress in Recess
Great opportunity for your legislators to get to know you
Each August, the U.S. Congress takes a recess from Capitol Hill and focuses their time in the district they represent. They attend local events, host town hall discussions, and meet with constituents -- you!
The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) urges riders to utilize the upcoming August recess as an opportunity to meet their legislator and have them get to know you and the riding community.
This August is an excellent time to get to know your lawmakers. Please take advantage of this opportunity to meet with your legislators, discuss issues important to you, and offer yourself as a resource for motorcyclist-related issues.
Opportunities to meet with your legislator during August recess:
- Attend a town hall meeting
- Schedule a meeting in the district office
- Invite your legislator to attend an event
- Attend a public event your legislator will be at
The AMA will alert you when your federal lawmakers schedule a public meeting. You may also contact your lawmaker's local office or visit their website to inquire about their public August schedule. To look up your lawmakers' contact information, visit the AMA Issues & Legislation page and enter your zip code in the "Find Your Officials" box.
For details on how to prepare for a town hall meeting, schedule a meeting with your elected officials, and more, visit the AMA Get Involved webpage and select "Communicate with Elected Officials."
To find information on motorcyclist-related issues visit the AMA Issues & Legislation page. Federal issues will be displayed on the main page. To view state specific issues, select your state in the "Search by State" drop down menu.
Lawmakers are elected by you and work for you. They care about your concerns -- the concerns of their constituents. Take advantage of this recess to meet your lawmakers, face to face, and allow them the opportunity to get to know you, the riding community, and motorcyclist-related issues. Encourage your fellow riders to join you in your efforts.
If you speak with your legislators this August, the AMA would like to hear your story. Please take a moment to tell us about your experience here, or contact the Grassroots Team.
Thank you for getting involved.
