UUSC Holiday cards are also sold at MSUS.

If you've never called Congress, it's incredibly easy.

1. Before 5 p.m. ET, call Sen. Amy Klobuchar 202-224-3244 or Sen. Alan 'Al' S. Franken 202-224-5641.
2. Usually one of the senator's interns will answer and ask where you're calling from and why.
3. This is your chance to tell them why you are calling.
4. It's just that simple.
