Do you want to see space settlement happen, but aren't sure how you can help? A powerful first step is contacting your Congressmen and local media by letter, email, or phone and expressing your support. Your voice is more powerful than you think.

Members of Congress and the media know that each person who contacts them may represent hundreds of others who feel the same but never choose to speak out.

The Space Settlement Institute has identified Land Claims Recognition on the Moon, Mars, and other celestial bodies as the most powerful financial incentive for making space settlement a reality (and a necessary first step to get the ball rolling), and at no cost to taxpayers.

Do you think Congress should form a committee to investigate the merits of Lunar Land Claims Recognition legislation? Then let your Senators and Congressman know how you feel! Inform your local newspapers and television stations as well, so they can help bring the issue into the spotlight.

"Contact the Media" web sticker

Click the Contact the Media web sticker above to access the media search page (Legislative Action Center) on capwiz.com. On that page, you can search for specific media (newspapers, television, and so on) by ZIP code, by the name of an individual in that organization, or by state.

After completing the search, select which media organization(s) to contact and compose an email to send or a letter to print out. As with the Congressional letters, media letters automatically have the correct mailing address at the top.

Every revolutionary idea passes three stages:
  1. It's impossible.
  2. It's possible but not worth doing.
  3. I said it was a good idea all along.
