PLEDGE TO CALL YOUR SENATOR/REPRESENTATIVE ON SEPTEMBER 20
Consider using this script as a guideline for your conversation:
Hello. My name is _________ and I live in __________, South Carolina. Today, millions of youth and their allies are striking to demand bold legislative action on climate change. I want _________ to know that I support our youth and join them in calling for climate action. As a person of faith, I know that climate change is a moral issue impacting people and places in my community. I ask that _________ courageously and immediately join the bi-partisan climate conversation. There is no time to waste. Thank you.
This is a moral movement that demands action from people of faith and conscience.
