The goal this week: ask friends to write their legislators. Share your email to legislators with them as a guide, or share these tips.
1. Even if legislators do not take action, we need to remind them that we demand policies to decrease emissions and increase resiliency. Special interests are already talking to legislators, prioritizing their profits over our future. If we do not make our voices heard, you can bet that other interests will be represented.
2. You can find your legislators using Facebook’s Town Hall tool, or at Find Your District. You can find your legislators’ contact information here.
3. Tell them why you care about climate action, and how they can help. You can advocate for a particular policy, or show your support for carbon pricing in general. Legislators care about what their district wants, and as a constituent you need to show why this is important to you.
Join us for a “Carbon Taxes Happy Hour” this Tuesday, May 23, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Big Time Brewery in the University District. Invite your friends, too! We are welcoming new members and reuniting with old friends.
