Congressional Letters and Certificates

Thank you for reaching out to include a recognition from Rep. Karen Bass in your event.  The office has modified the Letters and Certificates service due to safety and other adjustments required by COVID-19.   Capacity to meet these requests remains limited. Submissions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and we will only be able to fulfill a portion of them.  As circumstances allow, we will expand the number and type of requests we can meet.  We appreciate your understanding.

  • For memorial certificates ONLY, if someone has passed away and it would be meaningful to have a Certificate of Congressional Recognition for the person who has passed, please complete the form below. We will do our best to provide a timely certificate in this circumstance, but cannot guarantee turnaround in under 7 days.    

THANK YOU 

[PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROGRAM IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE]
Constituent requests for recognition can help Congresswoman Bass stay in touch with important events in the life of her district. Thank you for contacting us, and for helping us to serve you by completing the form below with information about your request. We regret that, due to the high volume, we are not able to meet every request.  

CORRESPONDENCE

[PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROGRAM IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE]

Once you have completed the online form, all correspondence related to your request should be directed to CA37.Certs@mail.house.gov. You may want to send a copy of the invitation or event flyer or other information that will help in producing the document(s) you request.

PLEASE NOTE: Invitations for Rep. Bass to attend or to join a host committee are handled separately. Submit those requests here: https://bass.house.gov/sch

ADVANCE NOTICE
Please plan ahead. We require a minimum of four weeks advance notice for your request. We appreciate longer lead times, too.  Urgent requests (except for funerals) will rarely be met.

Feel free to call and confirm that your request was received at 323-965-1422. 
You should be certain to call if you have a short deadline, e.g. if you request a memorial certificate and the service is in 3 days.

GUIDELINES FOR PERSONAL RECOGNITIONS

[PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROGRAM IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE]

We regret that, due to a high volume of requests, we are only able to provide recognition for birthdays and anniversaries that fall within the following limits:

  1. Birthdays: 75th or greater
  2. Anniversaries: 40th or greater

For a memorial certificate when someone passes away, please be sure to provide the date of birth, data of passing, and date of the funeral, memorial or other services.  

DELIVERY / PICK UP
Please be aware that certificates or printed letters may be mailed, but there is no guarantee that they will arrive in time for your event.  We recommend planning to pick them at the office at 4929 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 650, Los Angeles, CA 90010. There is one hour free parking available in the building parking lot, enter from Highland Ave. You should be notified when the order is ready, but feel free to contact us.
