Dear Representative [PUT YOUR REP NAME HERE] 


Thank you very much for your past support for climate action. Climate change is accelerating faster than ever expected and our window to act is rapidly closing. With back-stepping by the federal government, it is all the more urgent that states like ours take definitive leadership on making the transition to clean, renewable energy and decreasing fossil fuel emissions. We need you to help mobilize the Massachusetts legislature to meet these challenges. I ask you to act swiftly to co-sponsor the climate bills in this package.

I ask that you personally take a leadership role in putting climate related issues front and center. I ask you to act swiftly to co-sponsor the climate bills in this package. Getting the whole package enacted will require legislators to not only co-sponsor the bills but actively work to get them enacted.  Climate Action Now will be rating legislators this session to allow constituents to see how strongly their legislators support the bills in our legislative package. As my legislator, I hope you will be one of those who will get an A+.
Thank you.

 4.  Make a phone call to follow up on your letter and email. 

 

BONUS:  Amplify! Personally ask a friend in another part of the state to do this. Forward this page to them.  State action on climate is all-important now.

Thank you for TAKING ACTION!   Together, we are unstoppable.
