citizen billboards

Citizen billboarding is a very effective way to raise attention in your district and to generate pressure on your Legislators. The idea is simple: We hold light and inexpensive billboards at major intersections that direct constituents to a website where they are instructed to call their Legislators.  Watch our how-to video here.
