Have you ever wondered what protects your rights to email your Congressman and tell them exactly what you think? It’s the First Amendment of the U.S. constitution—it doesn’t just protect free speech, it also has a neat little section called “The Right to Petition,” that says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech… or the right of the people to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Although we may take it for granted, that “redress of grievances” is exactly what lets you email your Congressman and share your thoughts, concerns, and ideas. The founding fathers couldn’t have dreamed how much technology would change the world. 1791 may have seen you putting quill to parchment, but the principles and practice of how to write to congress are pretty much the same as they were 200 years ago.

If you want to have your say, and get taken seriously by your senator, it’s vital to write to them in the right way.

Remember, they’re there to represent you (For the people, by the people), but you need to make that easier for them to do. Your senator and their staff gets a deluge of correspondence every day. In this avalanche of emails, letters, phone calls, and social media, you need to keep things crisp, understandable, and easy to respond to.

Here’s the SaneBox Scoop on doing just that.

working remotely

Remote teams have been growing in number. In the U.S., the percentage of remote workers has increased from 9% in 1995 to 37% in 2015. This new business model has a lot of incredible benefits: being able to cull talent from around the world regardless of location, financial savings (no office building, etc.), and the convenience of everyone working their own hours rather than being crunched into the 9-5 workday.

While many remote workers report increased job satisfaction, what about those responsible for coordinating such teams?
