Climate Phone-A-Thon June 24 to June 26 - Call Congress to Support Climate Action

posted May 19, 2013, 7:27 PM by Rob Hogg   [ updated Jun 5, 2013, 6:19 PM ]

From June 24 to June 26, please call our Congressional representatives - and encourage others to call - to support "carbon fee and dividend" legislation and other action to fight climate change in 2013.  This is the “Climate Phone-A-Thon” – it is low-cost, easy-to-do, and urgently needed for Americans to speak up in favor of climate action.  Once you or your group have made your calls, report them to SenatorRobHogg@gmail.com.

Here are the phone numbers to call:

> Congressman Bruce Braley, 202-225-2911

> Congressman Steve King, 202-225-4426

> Congressman Tom Latham, 202-225-5476

> Congressman Dave Loebsack, 202-225-6576


Other Upcoming Events and News

June 23 to June 25 – Washington, DC – Citizens Climate Lobby Conference and Lobby Days – For more details, visit www.citizensclimatelobby.org.  CCL is doing district-by-district organizing to support carbon fee and dividend legislation that would put a price on carbon and return the money to Americans.  That policy is one of many actions we need in the fight against climate change.  For those unable to attend the CCL conference, try to organize group phone calls from your Congressional district on June 24 and June 25 to support the CCL Lobby Days as part of the “Climate Phone-A-Thon.”

July 15 to July 31 – “Summer Heat” Across America – This is a project of 350.org – As carbon dioxide levels rise above 400 parts per million for the first time in human history, “Summer Heat” is an effort to get many thousands of Americans to stand up for our future by supporting the fight against climate change.  For more details, visit www.joinsummerheat.org.  With your help, we can hold a “summer heat” event in every Congressional district in America.

March 1 to November 1, 2014 – Great March for Climate Action – One thousand people are organizing to march 3000 miles across our country next year from the West Coast to Washington, DC, to demand action on climate change.  To get involved, contact Ed Fallon in Des Moines, Iowa, at 855-35-MARCH (855-356-2724), or by email at ed@climatemarch.org.

I hope this information is helpful.  Please keep up your advocacy for the climate action we so urgently need for our future.
