Urgent Action Alert for constituents of District 8: Call Dave Reichert Now!

You've done so much this year to protect important services for survivors, including calling your federal and Washington State representatives—thank you for everything you have done over the past year in the fight to protect what’s most important.

As we close out the year, we have to ask you one more time to take action—which is needed urgently, as soon as possible.

If you are a constituent of District 8 (find out here), please reach out to Congressman Dave Reichert. Congressman Reichert is a member of the Ways & Means Committee in the House and a senior member of the Subcommittee on Tax Policy. He will be a powerful voice as the tax bill is debated in committee of conference

  1. Find out if you’re in Congressman Reichert’s district.

  2. Call him at both his DC and Issaquah offices: Washington, DC Office Phone: (202) 225-7761; Issaquah Office Phone: (425) 677-7414.

  3. Use this script: “Hello, my name is [NAME] and this tax bill will gut the deduction individuals get when they donate to nonprofit charities. This change will discourage charitable giving by individuals to nonprofits and therefore dramatically affect the donations nonprofits receive from generous individuals in our community and directly impact the level of service they can provide. Please oppose any proposed cuts to VOCA, Medicaid, public benefits, and other critical services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Please support eliminating the Johnson amendment, which would allow churches to endorse and oppose political candidates.” 

  4. Let us know you called.

I know we are all exhausted from the advocacy work we have been called to do. Your passion is needed one more time this year. We have a chance to implore Congressman Reichert to do the right thing as he nears the end of his Congressional career.

Thank you for everything you’ve done this year. Your voices make an enormous difference!


We can continue to provide services to survivors of sexual violence and advocate for state and national change because of your support. Donate today.
