President Trump’s proposed budget calls for deep cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency. That’s bad news for people who want to fight climate change. But it’s still up to members of Congress to pass the final budget.
Yesterday, we asked you to write your elected officials in Congress. Today, we’re asking you to call them. Consider contacting their local offices, because they may be less busy than the D.C. office.
You can say something like this:
“I’m calling today to ask [NAME of CONGRESS PERSON] to vote against any budget that makes deep cuts to the EPA. This crucial agency is tasked with ensuring all Americans have access to air that is safe to breathe and water that is clean to drink. Without proper funding, it cannot do this important job. Please fight to protect the health and safety of your constituents.”
