Congress needs to hear from you on trade issues. Use Twitter!

Today, 140 characters can create a large impact. We put together tweets to help you share concerns with Congress about unfair trade that threatens to block exports of our dairy products. Changes in Canada are the latest example.

We urge you to send these out once a day to ensure the message is received. 
You can also retweet our messages @dbmmcoop.

How to send tweet

Copy and paste each item separately into your Twitter account. Include the Twitter handles of your senators and district representatives (if room) or create two tweets, one for the senators and one for the representatives. Click here for the lawmakers' Twitter handles.
