SCRIPT

Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am calling with a message for Senator [YOUR SENATOR’S NAME].

The Supreme Court just limited the EPA’s ability to cut carbon pollution, taking away a crucial tool in the toolbox to safeguard [YOUR STATE] against dangerous climate impacts. 

As a constituent and a young Christian, I know that climate change is already impacting [YOUR STATE] and it’s now more important than ever for Congress to act.

I urge the Senator to support investments in climate, health, and clean jobs, like the $550 billion dollar investments proposed in the reconciliation bill.

We need urgent action now for the safety and wellbeing of [YOUR STATE], especially frontline communities that are already feeling the worst impacts of environmental and economic injustice. These investments will also provide good-paying, clean energy jobs to and help avert the worst consequences of climate change.

As a young Christian, I urge the Senator to support climate and clean energy investments now. We do not have any time to waste.

Thank you.
