Develop Op-eds and Letters to the Editor you can
edit and place in your local paper about the risks of climate change
and how it will help our country to stay in the Paris Agreement.
Offer guidance on how to get your governor, mayor
and/or City Council to sign onto Clean Energy initiatives.
Connect you to local and state legislators who
want to partner on building a low-carbon economy in their towns and
Organize a national webinar with mayors, business
leaders and other key officials and influencers on local and state
climate policy initiatives.

we can change that.
Looking forward to hearing from you at 3 p.m. ET this Friday, June 9.
