Write Emails and Sign Petitions
While not as effective as a phone call, writing emails and letters to your elected officials are still an important part of advocacy. Elected officials often keep track of how many emails and/or letters they receive on a certain issue. When an official receives many emails about a particular issue, it may motivate them to focus more on that topic.
Habitat for Humanity International links to a number of email templates and petitions to make sending a message convenient.
