Sample Call Script:

My name is (insert name) and I'm from (city/town). I'm calling today to register my opposition to the administration's recent executive order which will severely limit the United States' ability to decrease our contributions to climate change. As a person of faith, I believe climate change raises serious moral concerns about the use of our planet's finite resources and the negative impacts on the most vulnerable communities around the world. This order is a step backward in the effort to reduce the devastating impacts of climate change. In light of this executive order, we need leadership on climate action now more than ever. I urge you to stand for policies that respect our sacred relationship with God's creation, reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and invest in renewable energy sources.
