Ask your local government to join the Sue Big Oil lawsuit, as a way to help pay for the skyrocketing costs of climate change in your community.
Take a moment to contact your elected officials – they care what local residents have to say and it’s an effective way to make a difference. You can write a letter, email, phone, text, or engage your elected officials on social media.
Here are some points that you can include in a letter. You can use these as guidance, but it’s best to rewrite them in your own words:
We encourage you to send your letter to your Mayor and Council. If you live in an unincorporated area, send your letter to your Regional District Directors. Consult your local government’s website to find out who your elected officials are and their contact information.
Please let us know when you contact them, and how they respond.
It can also be very effective to phone your elected officials and/or engage with them on social media. You can use and adapt the above points to engage with your local government in the way that works best for you.
