Foxx to host America Speaking Out Telephone Town Hall

Tele-Townhall will focus on constituent ideas for national agenda

WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Tuesday, June 8 Congresswoman Virginia Foxx will host an America Speaking Out telephone town hall for Fifth District constituents. Constituents can call into the town hall meeting by dialing 1-877-850-4133 at 5:30 pm and entering the password FOXX (3699).

"America Speaking Out is a part of an effort to give concerned constituents a seat at the table so they can be a part of drafting a governing agenda from the start,” Foxx said. “I've always believed that the best ideas come from the people, not from Washington. Therefore, constructing a governing agenda should begin with the people.”

Constituents will be connected to a live conference call with Rep. Foxx and other constituents in the Fifth District when they call 1-877-850-4133 on June 8 at 5:30 pm. All participants will need to enter a password for the call: the password is F-O-X-X (3699).

“After joining the call, constituents will be able to tell me about their ideas and priorities, Foxx said. “This will also be an opportunity to learn about new online tools for engaging with fellow citizens and Congress on the issues facing America. And I’ll post a list of the ideas submitted on my website,, for participants to review after the call.”

This telephone town hall is open to constituents in North Carolina’s Fifth District. It is part of an effort called America Speaking Out, which aims to engage the nation in a discussion about the country’s policy agenda. More details on this effort can be found at
