Dear LWV members and friends,
Yes, there is something you can do about climate change! Five of our Northfield neighbors (including several LWV members) are joining many others from Citizens' Climate Lobby next week in Washington. They will tell our congressional representatives that climate change is a threat to all of us, and they will ask them to put a small price on carbon. Members of CCL will be meeting with EVERY member of Congress.
Our representatives in Washington think that we don't really care about climate change. Would you like to let them know that we want action? You can do it! All the info you need is included below in this information forwarded from Bob Ciernia, one of the participants:
YOU CAN HELP OUR VOICES BE HEARD!
How? The day before we meet with our Congressional representatives, you can call them to let them know you support what we're doing and why we are there. We are hoping you will call on Monday, June 22. What do you say? Keep it simple: "I'm calling because I am very concerned about climate change and what it is doing to our environment. Members of Citizens' Climate Lobby will be visiting your office tomorrow. I hope you will listen to their message so that our government begins doing something to address the problem. Thank you." (Feel free to add your own reasons for your concern. See this flyer for a fill-in-the-blank script.)
If Monday is not a good day for you to call, please call Thursday or Friday this week.
Here are the numbers to call:
WANT TO DO EVEN MORE? If you know someone who has made a comment about climate change, there is no better time for them to voice their concern than on June 22. Ask your friends, family, neighbors, fellow church members to call in support of what we're doing. Hey, this is CITIZENS' Climate Lobby so the more citizens who express their opinion, the better.
If friends or family live outside Minnesota, no problem, CCL chapters from around the country will be meeting with EVERY Member of Congress. There phone numbers are listed by state at the following government websites:
Thanks! Making your voice heard feels good!
