Action Network has a set of built-in targets you can choose from for both the US and Canada:

You can upload custom targets with a name, email, and ZIP/postal code to have activists email a target near them instead. We also offer the option of uploading shapefiles to do this targeting instead. Shapefiles are machine-readable descriptions of shapes on a map. For example, shapefiles could describe the states or regions of a country, or districts for members. More here.
You can also use letter campaigns to fill out contact forms on websites instead of sending emails to custom targets . For example, filling out regulatory comment forms. We can do this for any form on the Federal Register or anywhere else. (though not regulations.gov) If you want to set that up, please contact us and we'll help you do that! Note that this is a partner feature.
Phone numbers for targets can also be outputted in emails, allowing you to ask activists to call their elected officials, for instance. More information is available here.
