Announcing OpenCongress v.3 - Now the Easiest Way to Organize and Contact Congress
- OpenCongress is pleased to announce the release of version 3 of its free & open-source public resource website, putting new tools for engaging with Congress at the center of the site experience.
- OpenCongress version 3’s new engagement tools are primarily composed of two complementary sets of enhanced site features, free and open to everyone ::
- Contact-Congress: an open-source web tool to find and write a letter to all three of your members of Congress, send it immediately to their official government contact email addresses, track responses, and share the letter with the OpenCongress community and over social media.
- MyOC Groups: an open-source social network on OpenCongress that provides the necessary tools for people who share a position on an issue to work together on watchdogging, educating, and organizing actions directed at Congress. It also helps OpenCongress users link up with established organizations that are already working on issues they care about.
OpenCongress is one of ActivismNews' "follow" sites found in the right sidebar of all of its pages. Writing your congressmembers is a time-honored tradition and still one of the best ways to tell your representatives what you think of particular bills or issues.
