Last week, Congress members Earl Blumenauer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders introduced a bill (H.Con.Res.52) that would declare a climate emergency in the United States, and call for a national mobilization to address the climate crisis.
The resolution lays out some of the most important evidence that climate change has become a crisis, and must be solved “at a massive scale to halt, reverse, mitigate, and prepare for the consequences of the climate emergency and to restore the climate for future generations.”
One of the most effective ways to lobby your members of Congress is by calling. You can say something like this:
“Hello, I’m a voter from [YOUR TOWN]. I’m calling to urge [ELECTED OFFICIAL’S NAME] to support the resolution declaring a climate emergency.”
You can also send a message using the tool below from The Climate Mobilization.
