March 15-16: National Call-In Day to the White House

And later in March come to:
     • on Sunday, March 26, Somerville Library, 2:00-4:00, the July 26th Coalition rescheduled event: “Let’s Go To Cuba: Young People’s Experiences with Solidarity Brigades!” preceded by the monthly Standout.

The White House Call-In Line — 202-456-1111 — is open for comment only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 11 am to 3 pm, EST. So this is the time to call. An alternate number is the White House Switchboard: 202-456-1414. For some ideas, check out this suggested script.

If you call and cannot get through, you can use the online White House comments: — You can use the same script. Simply change the wording from “I am calling” to “I am writing.”

Important: Please let us know once you have called or used the contact form. This is important so that we can publicize how many calls and contacts were made. Please do it as soon as you have taken action. The link is at the bottom of the script and it is also here.

Background/Original Post

The idea came out of a meeting participated in with Congressman Jim McGovern earlier this month [February]. At a follow-up national policy meeting the dates of Wednesday and Thursday, March 15 & 16 were selected, days of the week that the White House Switchboard accepts calls from 11am to 3pm EST. Organizational sign-ons are currently underway.
