If your Rep. is already a signer, thank him/her and ask if they can influence one other House member to sign as well. If your congressperson hasn't yet signed, here are some useful resources to help you with this request:
- A laser talk for making the request and the phone number for the Capitol Hill switchboard: (202) 224-3121.
- A copy of the sign-on letter to Sec. of State Clinton and/or the media we've generate our investment in GPE. You can send it to the aide before or after the call.
- A fact sheet on global education that explains why education is so critical.
