There is also a component to search for your Member of Congress by entering your zip code. APHON will periodically send out action alerts which you will receive in your email. The action alert will link to the Legislative Action Center and direct you to take action by sending a message to your Member of Congress. Messages are pre-written but also include the ability to personalize the message. We hope that you will utilize this tool to be an engaged APHON advocate.
