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.
The primary asks listed here were intended to be used during CCL’s 2022 Fall Lobby Event. This page will be updated ahead of the 2023 June Lobby Day.
If you are holding a lobby meeting before June, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to help determine meeting topics and asks.
Check out the supporting asks page to see what we helped Congress accomplish in 2022!
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.
