Weekly Challenge: Contact Your Representatives!
I was angry a week ago, a month ago, a year ago. But yesterday, I became vehement. I take comfort in knowing that I am not alone. The threats to our scientific community are alarming and necessitate immediate action. So today, I ask my colleagues, friends, and family who value their rights to clean air, clean water, a nontoxic environment, and safety from the impacts of climate change to please write their congressional representatives. I may be an old-fashioned southerner, but I was raised to value the handwritten note. I have heard from countless congressmen and women and their staffers that letters mean so much more than an email or a tweet.
Nonetheless, every voice counts! Check out our Phone2Action action page below for easy access to your representatives.
Call, tweet, write, post away!
