Be a City Advocate this August Recess

This summer, make a difference.

You don't have to come all the way to Washington to be an effective advocate. Before you head to the beach this summer, stand up for your city and lobby your members of Congress during their August recess.

Senators and representatives will be home for the month of August, and this is a great time to meet with your legislators and let them know how much your city needs e-fairness legislation.

Spend time with your congressional delegation, and ask your senators to cosponsor S. 698, the Marketplace Fairness Act, and your city's representatives to cosponsor H.R. 2775, the Remote Transactions Parity Act.

It's easy to take action!
