APTA Encourages Continued Outreach to House Members

It’s August. Do you know where your member of the U.S. House of Representatives is?

Chances are, he or she is spending the summer recess in the district, right in your backyard—making these last days of summer the perfect opportunity to advocate for a six-year federal transportation funding bill and build on the bill the Senate passed just before the August recess.

APTA has compiled the August Recess Outreach Toolkit to help. The toolkit includes suggested social media posts, talking points for a letter to your representatives, a sample op-ed, blog post and letter to the editor and background information.

Visit the “Voices of Public Transit” website for an easy-to-use link to send a letter to members of the House and to engage advocates and partners in outreach. Members can also re-tweet and share posts from the public transportation Facebook page or the APTA Twitter page.

Find the toolkit here. For questions or details, contact Mantill Williams.
