Direct contact is by far the most influential method of communication with government officials. Town halls give you an opportunity to interact with politicians directly and hold them accountable. You can apply these skills to local government council meetings as well as representatives in state and federal positions.
You can usually find town hall meetings on the website of a governing body, official, or candidate. https://townhallproject.com also aggregates available town hall meetings, but keep in mind that it’s a volunteer service and you will likely need to research more into your local area.
