Congress has come out of recess and returned to Washington to hash out the final details of the Build Back Better Act — the reconciliation package currently working its way through the House. It’s the biggest and boldest clean energy and climate proposal in history — but right now, climate action hangs in the balance.
The oil and gas industry and other polluters are spending MILLIONS to flood Congress with deceptive messaging and apply pressure to strip climate action out of the bill. Widely supported, common sense climate provisions that would invest in communities of color and hire millions of people in new, good-paying, clean energy jobs could be on the chopping block.
That’s why we must come together and make our voices as loud as possible.
We’ve set a goal of 2,000 people from across the country to call their representatives TODAY — will you step up, call your representative NOW, and demand that Congress pass a bill that tackles the climate crisis?
ACT NOW: Text “CLIMATEBILL” to 877-877, respond YES when you’re ready, and you’ll receive a call and be connected to your representative.
Our talking points are below — it takes just a minute and will make a huge difference!
TALKING POINTS: (these are the main points — you can shorten or choose which you’re most passionate about when speaking to your representative)
- It’s time for the House to pass the full Build Back Better Act — the plan that invests in climate, clean energy, justice, and jobs at the scale that science demands.
- Right now is our key chance to take action to get MILLIONS of people back to work in new good-paying jobs in the clean energy economy, while tackling climate change and environmental racism.
- We MUST put the U.S. on a path to 100% clean energy by 2035, investing 40% of benefits going to environmental justice communities, and supporting high-quality, good-paying union jobs
- We’re part of the overwhelming, bipartisan majority of people in America — three in four voters! — who support infrastructure and clean energy investments that tackle the climate crisis and advance justice.
- A 100% clean energy future is possible, but only if we act boldly now. Please, support the full Build Back Better Act today!
Thank you for taking action!
