The next few months provide the best opportunity in a generation to pass important climate legislation to put our nation on a path to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
If you have ever considered using your powerful voice as a business, now is the moment.
Businesses from across the U.S. are joining #Call4ClimateNOW to encourage the American public to call our nation's lawmakers NOW and urge them to address the threat of our changing climate.
The campaign was created by the Climate Collaborative with Fossil Free Media but has grown to include partners B Lab, 1% for the Planet, Snowsports Industries America (SIA), and the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), representing businesses from many sectors, sizes, and geographies from across the nation.
This fall businesses will reach out to their stakeholders to encourage them to call their Senators and Representatives to ask them to support bold climate action NOW, specifically to invest at the scale of the climate crisis including:
- A Clean Electricity Payment Program that cuts pollution and modernizes our grid.
- Directing 40% of climate funding to frontline communities who are hit first and worst by the climate crisis
- No more subsidies for fossil fuel corporations.
- A Civilian Climate Corps that puts people to work.
#Call4ClimateNOW will provide businesses with a toolkit including images, sample social posts for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, talking points and even advice on what to do when you get pushback from some people. (As Chris Miller from Ben and Jerry’s says, “if no one is pushing back, you are not making change”.) If you have any questions, please reach out to us at [email protected].
