On November 14, 2017, hundreds of citizens from across the nation will be meeting with members of Congress in DC to ask them to enact Carbon Fee & Dividend. We need you to call your legislators on Wednesday, November 8th to amplify our voices and help move Congress closer to passing our legislation. If you can’t get through on Wednesday, try leaving a message in the evening or try again on Thursday, November 9th. We would really appreciate it if you would let our local CCL chapter know about the calls you have made. Using the calling tool at cclusa.org/callcongress automatically reports your call. If you do not use that tool for your calls you may report them here. CCL will send a reminder by text on Nov. 8 to anyone who has registered to receive text alerts. Sign up for text alerts here.
