What are postcard storms? Postcard storms are work sessions to which Friends For Civil Action invite people to write postcards to elected officials concerning our stand on individual pieces of legislation. We bring people together to write, so we stay on task and so we have the energy of mutual support being together creates. We provide sample postcard scripts to help writers get started. Storm hosts provide water and adequate seating and table space. Hosts also keep gatherings streamlined and focused. Stormers with Friends For Civil Action–stormers are those who come together to write their elected officials–bring their own stamps and postcards, unless they forget or don’t have a chance to pick up supplies; then the host offers back-up materials.
