Here’s a way to start. Jennifer Garner shared a video of herself baking brownie oatmeal and – while the treats were baking – calling on her senators to advocate for gun safety bills . It was quick, easy, and she even included the brownie recipe.

Garner shared the script, written by journalist Jessica Yellin, which reads, “Hello, I’m a voter. I would like to let the senator know that it is important to me that he vote for gun safety reforms before Congress. You can then say why it matters to you, if you wish. Garner received an automated voicemail so she left a message. For your information: The US Senate can be reached at (202) 224-3121. You can find your state senator’s phone number here.

Yellin broke down the best ways to take action on her Instagram and she really reinforces the idea of ​​making those phone calls. She detailed how and why you should speak on the phone with your senators, while offering a handy list of politicians who might be willing to participate in the gun safety bill. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, DN.Y. hopes to introduce a gun safety bill to the House floor “as soon as possible”, per CNBC.

It’s so easy to feel like there’s nothing you can do to make a difference. But, in another video that speaks directly to concerned Americans, Yellin explained that there are concrete steps that can be taken.

“Many of you are messaging me saying you feel helpless – like nothing you do can move the needle,” the reporter wrote in her video. “Here I explain why it is important to raise your voice. It is about persevering.”
