To reach your Senator, call the Congressional switchboard at this number: (202)-224-3121. Ask to speak to one of your Senators (if you don’t know your Senators’ names, just ask to speak to the Junior or Senior Senator from your state).
Once you’ve called one of your state’s Senators, please hang up and call the switchboard again and ask to speak to the other Senator. Feel free to use the following script to guide your comments:
Hello, I am a constituent of Senator ___ and I am calling with a comment. (Pause here as they might transfer you to constituent services.) I am calling to strongly urge Senator ___ to take a stand against offshore oil drilling. It is dirty and dangerous and spills can never be fully prevented. Please tell the Senator to vote for a ban on offshore drilling and to vote against any expansion of offshore drilling. Thank you.
