Your Personal Monthly Event
Make a Call 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:
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 make the call.
Use the REPEAT function to make it monthly reminder on that number day.
Include this URL in the Event: https://citizensclimatelobby.org/call-your-representative-about-the-energy-innovation-and-carbon-dividend-act/#/54/
Call your member of the House first. Then, call your Senators.
