Building a relationship with your legislators is easier than you might think now that many legislators are on Twitter and Facebook. You can find your federal legislators’ Twitter handles here.

Follow them and periodically tag your state legislators’ handles to your messages of support for the arts and sciences. Bonus tip: This approach also works for reporters covering higher education in your local paper.

Use these facts and figures to key your policymakers into the value of arts and sciences.
