Resistbot will ask for your name and information to find your elected officials. Your representatives will know you’re a constituent—that’s who matters to them.
Just text resist to 50409 to get started. It takes less than 5 minutes to have your voice heard in Congress.
How does it work?

Resistbot turns your text messages into daily letters to Congress— in the simplest and easiest way possible. We are working hard behind the scenes to make sure they are delivered and that your representatives take them seriously.

Will my message really count?

Yes! There’s a lot of information floating around saying that only certain ways of speaking up really count. We've confirmed that Resistbot messages are received and read by actual Congressional staffers.

What happens after I send my message?

Resistbot starts simple, with just your two Senators. Over time, it will ask you for more information so it can do a better job representing you, including in the House of Representatives.

Why don’t you tell me what to say?

Unlike a lot of other tools, Resistbot doesn't tell you what to say. Our research shows that form letters are totally ignored by Congress. Only original, unique messages count. But they don’t have to be complicated or fancy. Just a few sentences from a real-life voter gets their attention. Don't worry about typos or mistakes, that just proves you're a real person.

Can I send more than one message?

You sure can. Just text resist to the bot at any time.

What commands does Resistbot know?

As you use the bot more, you’ll discover more and more of what it can do. You can say less or more if you want it to contact you more or less frequently, feedback to let us know what you like and don’t like, changeaddress to change your address or reset if you make a mistake and want to start over. If you accidentally unsubscribe from the bot simply reply start to resume and commands is the cheat code to give you all the commands.
