Great app! 5/5
I think there are a few tweaks that would make it better, but it is really handy for making political engagement easier.
Keeps Me Active 5/5
With so many disheartening headlines it's difficult to gauge which issues to focus on. Five Calls helps narrow your focus and specificity.
Spectacular up to the minute information. Beyond calls it assists in setting up postcard parties!! Thank you to the brilliant creators of 5 Calls!
Love it but... 4/5
It needs a feature to immediately share your issue after making contact on social media with links to this app because otherwise it is pretty great!!! Makes things clear with background info. Could use a fill in the blank like the website with the correct names/bills. Look forward to using this more often!
Very Useful 5/5
This whole concept is really awesome. I have a lot of phone anxiety and having a guideline of what to say and why that's important is really helpful in overcoming that.
please group actions by who to call 4/5
I love this idea, but sometimes I am interested in more than one (or all) of the issues. So if I click one and make the calls, sometimes the next one has me calling the same people. That is extremely inefficient. I would so much prefer covering the 2 or 3 (or more) issues with one phone call. Please address and make this app even better! Thanks!
Best Political Phone Call App 5/5
I use it everyday. Simple and easy to use.
So Easy 5/5
By LizzieB TX
I'm not one to call Congress, but am compelled to do so now. This app makes it so easy for a newbie like me.
Huge impact 5/5
If you want to make it impact on society, this is how to be vocal. Download it ASAP. If you don't, I'll make 5 Calls to you until you do it.
thank you so much for this amazing site and app!!!!!!!!!!!
Best resistance help! 5/5
This app makes contacting Congress and other government officials so easy! I do a lot of research on my own about issues but would have to spend a lot of time putting my thoughts into something as precise and accurate as the prompts in this app. Thank you so much for such a great resistance app!
Makes calling MOCs easy! 5/5
Gives timely issues to select, with basic background info, a script & the relevant numbers/offices to call. Such a big help!
Best of the political activist apps! 5/5
This app makes political involvement so easy for those of us not sure what to say or who to call on a particular issue. Like most, I have become increasingly concerned about our government under this new administration and the actions (or inaction) being taken. And like most, I have felt in the past that my singular voice/opinions don't matter. This app changes all that helping each of our voices contribute to having real impact on the political direction of our government. Thank you!
Great App 5/5
This makes participating in our democracy easy.

5 calls effective and so easy! 5/5
5 calls is a great app! It makes it so easy to let your voice be heard on timely issues. It gives you phone numbers and connects you to your Senators or Congress person and the Senate and House intelligence committees.
Make a difference everyday with 5 calls!
Great app for doing the work! 5/5
I use this app about twice a week and love it! Not only is it useful but I find it motivating to keep making calls. I tell everyone about it... in the grocery store line, the Lyft drivers, people I meet walking my dog or in class -- they're everywhere! Lol It goes like this, "Soooooooo... how about that Trump?" (Watching their expression here is particularly fun / interesting.) Once they're done vomiting (I hold their hair if need be), I ask if they know about Indivisible groups and indivisibleguide.com first and I explain that contacting our members of congress is where the people hold the power and calling is one part of the equation. Then I show them the 5 Calls app and tell them they can make a difference today and tag they're it, spread the word. I've not had one person not thank me profusely! #Bernie2020
This app is so helpful. It assists novices in civic involvement and makes having your voice heard with your representatives a tangible option. I had my reps already in my contacts but having the issues broken down and the scripts provided to assist in voicing your concerns makes the conversations with staffers and reps seamless. And for a working mom, ease of use makes it easy for someone like me who was feeling isolated from the civic conversation. Thank you so much. I've recommended it to everyone I know.
This app is outstanding in all respects. I appreciate the ability to express my concerns and opinions in a clear and impactful way.
I also appreciate the fact that I can communicate with and receive a response from the app staff.

Thank you 5 Calls! 5/5
I so appreciate this app and those that developed it! I love that there is a description of the topic that needs resistance and then a SCRIPT of what to say and the phone number! It's fantastic as I wake up every morning and take action with their help! Awesome!

A MUST in these very troubling times 5/5
By Kathy H 17
A great app that provides basic info on the issues of the day and the info you need to make your calls and voice your concerns. We, the people, need to STOP the madness and this app is a great tool to help us do it.
Easy, quick, powerful 5/5
This app takes you to the rep you need to influence. We the people voted these folks in. We the people need to let them know when their priorities are wrong. Let's keep them working for us!
Great and easy way to make change 5/5
Seamless and easy. No more sitting on the sidelines for me during these troubling times. Gives you fast and easy way to contact our lawmakers.
5 Calls-- YES, Finally!! 5/5
i've bought a bunch of postcards and started mailing them to the Senate and the president and Sean Spicer etc. but this makes it so much easier and it put you right in touch with the people who matter the most. Whoever dreamed this up is a genius!
Fantastic app 5/5
5 Calls makes calling my representatives incredibly easy. The app asks what issues are important to you, then gives you word-for-word scripts to call representatives. It literally can't get any easier or more satisfying to be involved in the resistance!
By I like games . com
The first call to Congress can be awkward. 5 Calls makes it less awkward. Even if you don't use the script, the summary has great info, and the immediate connection to your legislators makes it so easy. Try it!
Excellent - it works, it's easy! 5/5
Excellent tool for making your voice heard.
A suggested improvement 4/5
Yes this is easy to use and I appreciate it. thank you. however I would like an "other" option on the call list. When we call on an issue not listed we need to be able to enter with that issue was
Has made this so easy 5/5
By Password forgetful
As I cringe every day Trump is in office and I see our democracy threatened I feel I must do something. But what? 5 Calls has helped make advocacy for the issuers that I find important so easy.
First but far from last time I use this handy app! 5/5
So easy to make an important call on a timely basis! Read about repeal of Dodd Frank in R-G this morning and remembered I had installed the app. Within seconds I reviewed the talking points provided, and was sharing them with a staffer for Peter DeFazio, who dutifully tallied, commiserated, and promised to pass my thoughts along to Peter.
The tool for our time and it works. 5/5
By CAN DO Tom
I have been using 'Five Stars for months, I use it as a template for daily calls, e-mails and faxing MOC's. I have logged over 200 calls and use it 7 days a week. Thanks for RESISTING;;;
5Calls is easy to use 5/5
I had been using a different service to call Congress since the election, but it was just one call, and I didn't always feel enthusiastic about the issue. Also, it was hard to keep track of what to say because it's a short text and a voicemail-- my mind would go blank when I called. Then I found 5Calls, the background info and a script for the call were all there on my phone screen. I still say what I want to, but the script helps me keep on task. Plus, if I get a busy signal, there's an easy way to get the other office numbers. I identified a few issues I cared about and my first time using, I made 7 calls. It's great.
Love this app! 5/5
I have been doing all this work on my own before finding this app. It has saved me countless hours on researching what my issues of the day would be each morning when I called my reps. THANK YOU!
A great political action tool 5/5
In this time of political chaos, with so many issues coming at us daily, this app makes it easy for the user to choose from a list of issues, get background information about each issue and phone numbers for the appropriate people in government to call, based on where you live. It also gives precise House or Senate bill numbers, when appropriate, so that you can be clear when you call about the exact piece of legislation that you're commenting on.
You then note whether you made contact, left a voicemail or couldn't get through. I use this app frequently and recommend it.
