Regardless if you’re able to attend an in-person climate strike this year, making your voice heard as a citizen is incredibly important. Below is an email template that you can copy/paste and edit to your liking to send to your representatives. While it may be scary, I highly encourage calling over emailing as it is less popular and more effective at reaching people.

Phone Script/Email Template featuring bill proposal from #CallforCLimate
Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME], I am a citizen currently living in [YOUR CITY/TOWN, STATE]. I am incredibly concerned of the state of the planet following the IPCC report this year announcing a Code Red for humanity. I have the right to know my future will be secure. I am asking the [SENATOR/REPRESENTATIVE] to support a climate bill, that invests at the scale of the crisis, including
A Clean Electricity Payment Program that cuts pollution and modernizes our grid.
Directing 40% of funding to frontline communities.
No more subsidies for fossil fuel corporations.
A Civilian Climate Corps that puts people to work.
