The Washington Environmental Council has initiated a petition gathering effort in the state to support change. According to WEC, the climate movement in the Pacific Northwest is growing faster than ever, just last week, Oregon denied a key permit for a proposed coal export terminal, a big success for the health of the PNW. And this weekend, September 2o, is the largest rally for climate ever in New York City, with hundreds of solidarity events happening around the nation with many in Washington.
To build on this momentum, Washington Environmental Council announced the launch of their petition gathering effort. WEC says our legislators need to see the energy and hear the calls for climate action in Washington, sothey are working to collect 50,000 signatures from citizens across Washington state. With your help, Governor Inslee and our legislators will see the support and hear the strong call to action that our communities want.
- Schedule an email to your Washington members for next week, Sept 22 – Sept 26.
- Choose an email template and adapt/personalize it if you’d like to incorporate more of your organization’s voice. WEC encourages you to use the first version which builds off the energy from this weekend’s climate march.
