Thursday, June 1st - Tell your Representative to speak out for Paris Accord

Tell your Representative to speak out for Paris Accord

President Trump is threatening to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. He gives no reason for this, he is just teasing the idea - reality TV style - that he might. It'll be announced soon! Can't wait to hear if our children's future gets a rose or not.

I'm not going to ask anyone to waste their time trying to send Trump an email asking him to change his mind. What I am asking is we push our members of Congress to push back against Trump and speak out. Some of our reps have done this and some haven't. Let's call them all regardless.

Members of Congress who have spoken out: Quigley, Rush, Gutierrez, Schakowsky, Kelly, and Duckworth

Script: Hi, my name is ___________ and I'm a constituent of Representative/Senator ____________. I'm calling to thank the Congressman/woman/Senator for speaking out against the very idea of pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement. We need the Congressman/woman to keep speaking out and speaking out loudly against this action that could put all future generation in jeopardy.

Members who have not spoken out: Danny Davis, Dick Durbin (check their twitter feeds for potential changes: Davis Twitter, Durbin Twitter)

Script: Hi, my name is ___________ and I'm a constituent of Representative/Senator ____________. I'm calling to ask the Congressman/woman/Senator to speak out against the very idea of pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement. We need the Congressman/woman to step up and speak out loudly against this action that could put all future generation in jeopardy. President Trump actions cannot be met with silence.

Join Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky in Roskam's 6th district

 

Roskam won't show? That's alright, we've got Jan! Jan Schakowsky is being amazing as usual and has stepped up for the Adopt-a-district program, lending an ear to the voices in the 6th district. If Peter Roskam doesn't have a spine, then the Congresswoman will just have to show him how it's done. If you want your voice heard, first head to the March for Truth, and then head out to Palatine. RSVP here to get your tickets here.
