Public Officials who need to hear my voice
The following are some public officials who are going to hear my thoughts on the first week of POTUS’s term. I’ll call their phone lines, first. And I may mail a letter, knowing that letters will be delayed significantly for security concerns.
UPDATED 1/29/2017 with information on using the Capitol switchboard to contact your Congressional representatives.
The leaders in Congress should be taking a stand and either pushing back on the POTUS actions or defending their correctness. Right now, we’re hearing nothing from the GOP. Their colleagues from the other side of the aisle needs to convince them that remaining silent in the face of a potential demagogue will cost them (and America) in the future.

If you are reading this and you don’t live in my Congressional district, you can call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121. Switchboard operators will connect you with the Senator or Representative you want to talk with. See this page for advice on how to talk with a member of Congress.
The White House
Everyone should let the White House know how they feel, too. They do have a comment line.
White House Comment Line: 202–456–1111
Unforunately, recent accounts say the comment line is off-line. Due to the volume of calls? For political reasons? Maybe the switchboard operators resigned with State Department career leadership. Fortunately, some code monkeys came up with a tool that will allow you to call one of the Trump properties (ther other “white houses”) to express your comment. Go to this web page, and read the instructions.
