The Washington Post wants to hear from you: Has someone ever made you feel like an outsider in the United States? If you responded, what did you say? If you didn’t, what do you wish you or others around you would have said?
We set up a voice mail box for you to share your responses. To leave us a message, call 202-642-1627. Or you can record a voice memo on your phone and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “America Voice Mail.”
What will The Post do with my voice mail?
We may publish some of the messages at a later date. A reporter might contact you with additional questions.
Who is listening to the voice mails before they’re published?
Reporters in our newsroom. The phone number and information you provide will be used only for this project.
Are there rules or recommendations for leaving a voice mail?
There are no rules, but the voice mail box stores messages only up to three minutes long. We recommend starting the call with your name, age and hometown before getting into your experience.
If The Post publishes my voice mail, will you include my name?
Yes, if we do publish your response, we’ll include your name, age and hometown. If you have concerns about publishing your name, please let us know.
Thanks in advance for leaving a message. We’re listening.
