As Congress continues to negotiate the budget reconciliation package into 2022, making sure that strong climate legislation, including a price on carbon remains our highest priority. Since local leaders have extra clout with members of Congress, join CCL Action and Endorsement Coordinator Sabrina Butcher for a training that will walk through how to ask your community leaders (endorsers and non-endorsers) to personally call their members of Congress and identify themselves as a community leader when they call. Local elected officials, business executives and faith leaders can be especially persuasive.
