Message from the Chair: Help End the Government Shutdown: Contact your Senate and House Representatives Today

The continuing government shutdown is beginning to have significant impacts on governtment-funded missions, facilities, and research, including DPS members and their families.  So please contact your representatives in Congress and encourage them to work with their colleagues to end this shutdown.

Tell your representatives in Congress how the shutdown is impacting you in  your professional and personal life, and ask them to pass legislation today that ends the shutdown, provides full-year spending to these agencies, and gets  federal employees back to work.

Contact your Senate and House representatives.  Specific contact information can be found at

Also, send a brief message to the White House at
