Here’s a Service That Turns Your Texts Into Faxes To Your Reps

office-620822_640 You already know that communicating with your elected officials is vital in the age of Donald Trump, but how can the average person find the time? There is 5calls.org, which we’ve talked about in this space before, sure, but what about for those who really, really hate talking on the phone? A bit of wisdom that floats around from time to time says that faxes to reps are more efficient than emails, but face it: No one has a fax machine anymore unless they work in an office building and most managers wouldn’t be thrilled to know their machines are being used to send political messages with the return number linking back to the business. If you don’t want to head to Staples to stand in line and pay a fee for every tax, try Resistbot. Using Resistbot is simple. Your texts are turned into faxes by the . Former Hillary Clinton campaign volunteer and Resistbot co-founder Jason Putorti said this to Recode:
We will faithfully deliver any message our users send in, but the voice of the product is for the liberals and conservatives in opposition to the Trump administration.

For those volunteering, this is a nonprofit side-project and is something they believe in. All you do is send the word “resist” to 50409. The bot will respond, asking for your zip code. Once you tell it that, your reps will be determined, you’ll type our your messages to them, and they’ll receive a fax. At first your message will go to your Senators, but after a little interaction, a user can expect to be able to send messages to Congressional representatives, too.
