Primary Ask (Leave Behind)
When you hold a lobby meeting, whether with an aide or with a member of Congress, they want to know what actions we want them to take. Our Primary Ask (Leave Behind) sheet lets them know.
Note: This page was just updated for the CCL training on Primary & Supporting Asks for our December Lobby meetings
For our December 2022 Lobby Meetings, CCL's Primary Ask is organized based on the political party and the congressional chamber you’re meeting with:
- Senate Democrats: Finish Strong on Climate!
- Senate Republicans: Make America Prepared and Resilient!
- House Democrats: Finish Strong on Climate!
- House Republicans: Help Farmers and the Climate!
Send the corresponding handout and the companion 1-page Supporting Ask document(s) to your member of Congress or staffer ahead of your lobby meeting. It is also recommended that you use this ask to frame your conversation with them. To download your PDF resource click on the button(s) below.
The primary ask should be made in every meeting, but your ask will differ if your member is a Republican or Democrat. For full instructions for how to use these documents, see the Reviewing Primary & Supporting Asks training.
