You can make the biggest impact by writing your elected officials and asking them for change. Use these suggestions to get started.
Letter-Writing Tips
  • Mention up front that you are a constituent (i.e., you live in their district).
  • Be specific. Discuss specific legislation or steps your elected officials can take to combat climate change and let them know you are watching their actions.
  • Keep it short.
  • Use a collaborative, rather than accusatory, tone. We must build partnerships to create change.
  • Look beyond just state or national elected leaders. Your list of officials could include:
    • Mayor
    • City council representatives
    • Religious leaders
    • PTA/school leaders
    • Leaders of professional associations
