Your Personal Monthly Event

Send an Email Once a Month to Your Congressperson

You can find time to make a call once a month to your member of the House.  It takes 3 minutes or less. Just tell them – you are very concerned about the climate crisis and want them, your elected representative, to take action. 

How To Steps:

  1. Create a Calendar Event on your phone or calendar. On the number day of your birth (1st, 23rd whatever) put a reminder to yourself to email.

  2. Use the REPEAT function to make it monthly reminder on that number day

  3. Email your member of the House first.  Then, email your Senators.

  4. Email them to ask for their support for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, HR 763.  Ami Bera, District 7 is a co-sponsor.  Doris Matsui, District 6, is not a co-sponsor.
