Momentum is building – with 45 Representatives signed on, more than 300 state and local officials in solidarity and 81% of registered voters in favor, it’s clear that the Green New Deal has the potential to transform our politics and response to the climate crisis….but only if House Dems refuse to accept Pelosi’s compromised committee.
Call House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: (415) 556-4862
Why call? Has the power to create a select committee for a New Green Deal and is currently pushing forward a weakened version.
Suggested script: Hi, my name is [your name] and I’m calling Speaker Pelosi to say that any climate committee formed under her leadership MUST include the Green New Deal resolution goals and exclude any members who are taking money from the fossil fuel industry.
Call Representative Pramila Jayapal (7th Congressional District): 206-674-0040
Why call? Has signed on to the Green New Deal, can put inside pressure on House Dems.
Suggested script: Hi, my name is [your name] and I’m calling to thank Rep. Jayapal for supporting the Green New Deal, and to ask her to speak strongly now for a select climate committee that prioritizes Green New Deal resolution goals and is made up of representatives who have taken the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge.
Call Representative Adam Smith (9th Congressional District): (425) 793-5180
Why call? Hasn’t yet signed on to the Green New Deal, and having new sign-ons at this moment is a powerful way to show public support
Suggested script: Hi, my name is [your name] and I’m calling to ask Rep. Smith to sign on to the resolution calling for a select committee on a Green New Deal. According to the International Panel on Climate Change, we have just 12 years to act if we’re to have a stable climate future. The Green New Deal is a bold, progressive solution at the scale of the crisis we face. Can Rep. Smith support the resolution?
