A MESSAGE FROM THE
EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS

      Dear Peace Voter,

      You are an internationally powerful person.

      Although our country’s standing has taken a hit these last few years, the fact is the United States still
      plays a powerful role on the world stage. You can help determine the shape that role takes as a new
      administration enters the scene.

      Tools like this scorecard help you tell your representatives that you know the score. Let them know
      how you feel about their records on the foreign policy issues you care about. You can do that on the
      phone and by letters and email; through talking to representatives at their town hall meetings and
      local lobby visits; and through kudos or pink slips at the ballot box.

      A new administration brings with it great hopes for a new foreign policy. Given the lack of
      progress on foreign policy issues over the last few years (as embodied in the 2008 scorecard),
      bold action is essential. We need vocal, active political support for international cooperation,
      diplomacy and disarmament to make that a reality. The Cold War era approach that prioritizes
      the blunt instrument of military force over smart diplomacy, democracy, and development is still
      deeply entrenched. Whether the issue is tensions with Iran, the military budget, the Afghanistan
      war, or US and Russian nuclear weapons stockpiles, it will take strong public support to advance
      more peaceful solutions.

      Congress will continue to play a central role in whatever new direction our foreign policy takes.
      And Congress listens to its constituencies. The voice of what President Eisenhower called the
      “military-industrial complex” is heard in most districts across the country and can drown out
      common sense. But not if the people in this country speak up loudly and often.

      You can speak out for a new vision for US foreign policy. Together, we can advocate for 21st century
      tools like robust diplomacy, strong international laws and institutions, a just world economy,
      human development, and environmental sustainability.

      While the United States remains powerful – and can use that power as a force for good – it’s critical
      to recognize that our security is closely connected to that of other nations. The last eight years of
      unilateralism proved that we are living in the age of the global citizen, and the United States cannot
      truly make itself secure when it acts in isolation.

      Through tools like this scorecard, you can make sure our country offers new models of cooperation
      that make the US more secure and solve global problems. When you take action, you take your
      place on the international stage alongside all the world’s citizens.

      Thank you for your engagement and support,




      Jon Rainwater                                                      Kevin Martin

Best Practices For Communicating with Congress
Excerpted and adapted from a helpful report by the Congressional Management Foundation

Sending a letter to [or calling] a member of Congress is not equivalent to casting a ballot or answering a survey, where the
choice with the most responses “wins.” Sending a letter to a member of Congress is more like giving a speech at a town meeting
or writing a letter to the editor. The content matters. The operating assumption of many congressional staff is that the more
thought constituents give to the communication, the more passionately they care about the issue. Quality messages are those
that are:

    1. Personalized. Even just one relevant and personalized sentence or paragraph in an otherwise generic message
    conveys some sense of a constituent’s sentiment. The more personalized the message, the better. It significantly helps the
    communication if one’s personal views, experiences, and the reasons for one’s opinions are included in the message.

    2. Short. Congressional staff review hundreds of letters every week, so covering an issue in a few short paragraphs helps
    them immensely.

    3. Targeted. Messages that convey knowledge of specific legislation, the member’s stance on the issue, and the impact the
    legislation will have on the member’s constituents, district, or state tend to be much more persuasive than generic messages.

    4. Informative. Congressional offices do not have the resources to research and track every bill, so they focus on legislation
    being considered in their members’ committees or by the full House or Senate. Often constituents bring new legislation to
    their attention, requiring staff to do research so as to be able to discuss and respond to it. For this reason, quality messages
    contain specific information about the legislation in question.
