So, you want to find your Member of Congress’s next town hall? That’s great! Attending town halls is a crucial way to have your voice heard and ensure your MoC listens to constituents.
As of January 2023, we will no longer be keeping a fully comprehensive list of all upcoming town halls (we’ve found that Indivisibles often know this information before we do!). You can check out upcoming events on the indivisible map here, which will make it easier to see Indivisible groups events and town halls all in one place. And, you can still submit town halls that your group is attending or hosting here.
Here are some tips for how to find your MoCs next event:
Check out accounts and websites run by the elected officials and their staff including:
- Official government websites - specifically check out sections on Press Releases, Events, and Media Alerts
- Official government newsletters - their sign up page is typically found on their websites.
- Call/Email their offices
If the elected official doesn’t seem to be announcing events on any of their accounts, there are other places you can check:
- Local newspapers
- Vekeo - for telephone town halls
- Neighborhood websites
When do elected officials usually hold town halls?
- After big events like when bills pass, emergencies, news impacting the community, etc.
- During a recess
- For federal recess schedules, visit congress.gov/calendars-and-schedules
How to Register a Town Hall on the Indivisible Map:
- Go to indivisible.org.
- Select “Join the Movement”and then select in that menu “Register an event”
- Fill out all the fields.
- Select event type “town hall”
- Be sure to include registration information in the public event description and the link to the event information field.
Note: Please be sure to include in the public event description any information from the original town hall posting and note if your group is recruiting a group to attend or if registrants should plan to join individually. The event will automatically collect RSVPs, so please be sure to clearly explain in the event description where attendees should register for the town hall.
