Attend a Town Hall Meeting

One of the most effective—and most underutilized—ways to communicate directly with Members of
Congress, state legislators, and local elected officials is to attend their town hall meetings. Policymakers take to heart what they hear directly from constituents who make the effort to show up at a town hall meeting.

Attending a town hall and asking questions related to UO's legislative priorities is a great way to support students and the university. If you're interested in attending a town hall, we encourage you to email [email protected] to get a list of sample questions related to our current agenda. We are also happy to help answer any questions you may have. 

Find a town hall in your area from the list below and register to attend as a UO Advocate! Need a refresher on which district you live in? Find your legislator here!
