About Us
Action Team
Identify and engage community leaders who, (1) will influence your member of Congress, and (2) you have access to through your network. Determine with the community leader an action that they can take to demonstrate strong district support for The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act and then work with the influencer to take the action.
Sabrina ButcherSteffi Rausch, and Todd Elvins are the team admins. Ask a question in the Forum or email us if you need help engaging community leaders.
