Tweet Congress Day

No Image Description
Description
Tweeting your Senators and Representative helps create the political will needed to solve global warming by demonstrating constituent concern. Tweet to your members of Congress on November 12th to amplify our voices and help move Congress closer to enacting the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Action. If you can’t tweet on Nov. 12th, tweet on a day in mid November that is convenient for you.

Your tweets will support hundreds of your fellow CCL volunteers who are meeting with members of Congress in D.C. ​on November 12th to ask them to cosponsor the Energy Innovation Act. Below you will find resources for engaging lots of people in our Tweet Congress Day.
