Writing to Congress

Dear Readers,

Madame L realizes she has forgotten to put contact information for writing to your Senators and Representatives where you can easily find it.

Madame L is remedying that problem so you can always find this information. It's in a new box at the top right of this page.

Madame L appreciates your staying active in the political progress. People like us are going to have to work hard to keep our democracy safe from the big companies and super-PACs and other organizations that would deny us our rights.
