SIX WAYS TO AMPLIFY CLIMATE ACTION:

1. Learn more about the voting history of your Members of Congress on environmental issues, click here.


2.  Make Phone Calls to Members of Congress

See #3 to find phone number for your Senators or Representatives.

Members of Congress don’t seem to hear enough from their constituents that climate change matters. It is up to us to let them know we care and we want action. Calling your Senators and Representative is the first step in building a relationship with your congressional offices and creating the political will needed to solve the climate crisis.

Call Script:  

Hi my name is {insert name} a constituent from {Insert City & State}.  There is no doubt that climate change is real and poses a grave danger to current and future generations of Americans. This week elders, parents and children from across the country are gathering at the Nation’s Capitol to demand immediate action on climate change. As your constituent, I urge your immediate support of legislation that will take action to lower greenhouse gas emission and support the goal of 100% clean energy, across the entire US economy, by 2050.
