How to Write a Petition

FaxCongress can help you learn how to write a petition by providing a free petition template with instructions that make it easier to concisely state your goals. Create an account and we will fax your petition to your congressman for free.

WHY REGISTER? Our free service sends a real fax to a real congressman, so we must verify you are a real person. When congressmen read your 1-page fax, they need assurance you are not an anonymous source or mass duplication. For this reason we request a one-time, full registration which may take you a few minutes. Doing this will make sure that your fax to your congressman really counts! In the future you won't need to re-register, (just remember your email and password to log in), but new users must please compete our free registration page here, (and CHECK YOUR EMAIL to double-opt in by clicking the link we email to you). Thanks for your patience!

When you write a petition letter to Congress, you need to remember to articulate precisely what you hope to achieve. The subject line and first sentence are critically important, and should entirely summarize what you want.

Use respectful language at all times.
