Mobile Commons allows ALA to send text message alerts to a mobile list. From there, advocates can connect directly to their legislators simply by responding to the text. Mobile Commons also enables ALA to post click-to-call alerts on our webpages. The alert connects advocates, whether they’re on the mobile list or not, to their legislator’s office simply by entering their phone number on our page and clicking “call.”
Sign up now for Text Alerts! ALA will keep your information confidential and send only critical, periodic text messages about library advocacy opportunities. For more information, download the Mobile Commons FAQ (PDF).
