Call Your Senators to Keep Georgia Welcoming


Are you interested in contacting your Georgia Senators to ask them to support welcoming refugees and immigrants in Georgia? Whether this is your first or 1,000th call, your Senators are there to hear from you! On behalf of the Coalition of Refugee Service Agencies (CRSA) here are some helpful tips and resources for making your outreach successful. 

Contacting Senator Johnny Isakson

STEP 1: CALL Senator Isakson’s Office at 1-877-721-4575.  If the line is busy, you may leave a message, or choose to call back when you are able to speak to someone in person.

Never called before? Not sure what to say? Here’s a very simple example you can use when you call.

Hi. My name is [NAME], and I’m a constituent from [City]. I want to congratulate Senator Isakson on his re-election and ask that he support resettlement of refugees in Georgia, and to protect the rights of all immigrants. Refugees are immigrants to the United States who are fleeing their homeland because of persecution and are invited by the American people. Refugees undergo the most rigorous background, security, and medical screens of any class of immigrants.

If you feel comfortable, you can also share your personal story of working with or seeing success in the refugee community in Georgia.

Step 2: Follow-Up Email          www.isakson.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-me

  • Put in your contact information
  • Choose “immigration” as the topic
  • Write “Keep Georgia Welcoming for Refugees” as your Subject

Not sure how to follow up? Here’s a sample email:

Earlier today I spoke with your office staff, who I found helpful and inviting.

I write to encourage you, Senator Isakson, to continue Georgia’s legacy as a welcoming state by supporting refugee resettlement in our communities.

Refugees in Georgia contribute to our economy, encourage diversity in our neighborhoods, and bring bright futures to our schools.

Thank you for your service to the people of Georgia, and for making Georgia a home for all peoples.

Step 3 (Optional): If you would like more follow up, you can also continue the conversation on social media, to help spread your message of support on Facebook and on Twitter.
