CCL Phone & Text Banking For A Carbon Price
By Sabrina Butcher, CCL Action and Endorsement Coordinator
CCL is hosting its first nationwide phone banking effort to mobilize supporters to make emails and calls to Congress asking for a price on carbon in the budget reconciliation bill.
(The short link for calling/emailing the Senate is cclusa.org/senate and the House is cclusa.org/house)
We've scheduled a series of virtual phone banks where we will be calling CCL supporters across the country, asking them to contact their members of Congress. Join us to help mobilize the CCL masses. Since all calls will be to CCLers this should be fun and inspiring.
We'd love to have volunteers with phone banking experience, but it is not necessary as long as you are comfortable with technology and a quick learner. You'll need a computer with a headset and a quiet place where you can make calls. You will not use your personal phone. We will provide a script, training and support. Training will be the first 30 minutes of each session.
Please RSVP for one or more of the events below so we know how many to expect and please add them to your calendar as well. (You can RSVP on each event page)
