Why participate in grassroots? You have a unique story to tell and as a constituent who understands the issues can tell our story in a personal, compassionate way that facts and statistics never will. Through constituent letters, phone calls, and face-to-face meetings, legislators learn what's important to the “people back home.” As the legendary Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill often said, “all politics is local.”
