CAFTA Call Instructions
When you call:

  1. Ask to speak to the trade staffer, chief of staff or legislative director.
  2. Tell them you are a constituent and want to know your Rep's position on CAFTA.
  3. If the Rep is opposed to the agreement and will vote against it, thank him/her. Ask your Rep to make his/her opposition public. Always ask for a letter to you stating his/her position.
  4. If the Rep is undecided, ask your Rep why and when they are planning on taking a position. Let them know that you oppose CAFTA (any personal stories related to how NAFTA hurt your region are helpful) and urge them to vote no when CAFTA comes up.
  5. If the Rep is for CAFTA, urge them to reconsider. Inform the office that you intend to spread the word that the Rep is voting against their interests.
