Let Congress Know You Care

Help the Foreign Service by writing to Congress or to the White House! 

Have you or someone you know been assisted by an embassy or consulate abroad? Or perhaps a diplomat has spoken to your class or to you about a policy issue or a career in the Foreign Service.  If so, please let your Member of Congress know.  Congress controls the budget for the State Department. By writing that you value them, you  will help to ensure we have embassies and consulates assisting Americans in need wherever we study, work or travel – which is pretty much everywhere!
