Description of App

**As seen on MSNBC...**

"The app will even dial your representative for you. It's so cool!" - Michael Moore

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

Turn your passive participation into active resistance. Facebook likes and Twitter retweets can’t create the change you want to see. Calling your Government on the phone can.

Spend 5 minutes, make 5 calls.

Calling is the most effective way to influence your representative. Read more about why calling works.

5 Calls:

- Provides phone numbers and scripts so calling is quick and easy

- A background on why each issue is important so you can judge how important each one is to you

- Uses your location to find your local representatives so your calls have more impact

- Keeps track of who you've called about each issue so you can make your way down the list

TOGETHER WE’VE MADE over 2 MILLION CALLS!

Accessibility Comments

App is accessible, written scripts and everything reads well with voiceover, the only 2 issues I want to point out is when you open the app after you set it up there's a button at the top that's labeled gear, this button will allow you to set reminders to make your daily calls or however many times you want to call. There's also an unlabeled button at the end of each article before you get to the lists of the reps/senators for each issue, double tapping on this button does nothing so don't know what that's for but it doesn't affect the apps functionality.

iOS Version

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Great app in case you want to call your local reps about an issue that may be affecting you locally or nationally.

The App Store link which was posted for this application doesn’t work. It says it is not available in my country and I am in the United States. I found it in the App Store and it is there.
