  • Congress must pass transformative legislation that tackles climate change and addresses environmental justice.
  • The President’s Build Back Better agenda gave a blueprint and now it’s Congress’ time to act.
  • Budget reconciliation is a key tool to deliver on these commitments and I urge Rep ____ to support this legislation.

Not sure what to say? We have a guide to help.

Hello! My name is My full name. I'm calling from My City and State.

I’m extremely concerned about the climate crisis and air pollution. Wildfires are more frequent and harder to fight, drought is plaguing our farmers and superstorms are decimating our coastal communities, and millions of students are breathing in dirty air into their lungs. Major investments like electric school buses are needed now to create solutions to the climate crisis and local air pollution facing us and future generations while creating millions of good jobs.

I hope you’ll act quickly to voice your support for large investments in electric school buses that create good-paying jobs. We urgently need to tackle the climate crisis and address environmental injustice while getting people back to work and giving the economy the boost it needs.

Thank you for your time.

What’s At Stake

As climate change drives more extreme weather, every state in the country is at risk unless we make major infrastructure improvements that move us away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy. President Biden has proposed a sweeping plan to rebuild our country’s infrastructure in a way that advances climate and environmental justice.

As Congress continues to deliberate, the climate crisis continues to unfold. We need your help to make sure investments in climate and environmental justice don’t get left out of the negotiations. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity for social and environmental progress in the U.S. and your member of Congress needs to hear from you directly. Now is the time to act so let’s all do our part to pass bold and equitable federal climate policy — call today.

Your Actions Matter

Your messages make a difference, even if we have leaders who don't want to listen. Here's why.

You level the playing field.

Elected officials pay attention when they see that we are paying attention.

They may be hearing from industry lobbyists left and right, but hearing the stories of their constituents — that’s your power.

Our legislators serve at the pleasure of the people who gave them their job — you. When you contact your elected official, you’re putting a face and a name on an issue. Whether or not you voted for them, they work for you, for the duration of their term.

Make sure your elected officials know whose community and whose values they represent. (Find your local, state, and federal elected officials.)

Your action is with us in court.

If a federal agency finalizes a harmful action, the record of public comments provides a basis for bringing them into court.

Throughout each of the public comment periods we alert you to, Earthjustice’s attorneys are researching and writing in-depth, technical comments to submit — detailing how the regulation could and should be stronger to protect the environment, our communities, and our planet.

We need you to join us — your specific experiences, knowledge, and voice are crucial to add to the Administrative Record through the comment periods.

Lawsuits we file that challenge weak or harmful federal regulations rely on what was submitted during the comment period. The court can only look at documents that are in the Administrative Record — including the public comments — to decide if the agency did something improper.

Your actions aid our litigation. Taking action and submitting comments during a comment period is substantively important.

It’s the law.

Federal agencies must pause what they’re doing and ask for — and consider — your comment.

Many of us may have never heard of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), but laws like these require our government to ask the public to weigh in before agencies adopt or change regulations.

Regulations essentially describe how federal agencies will carry out laws — including decisions that could undermine science, or weaken safeguards on public health.

Public comments are collected at various points throughout the federal government’s rulemaking process, including when a regulation is proposed and finalized. (Learn more about the rulemaking process.) These comments become part of the official, legal public record — the “Administrative Record.”

When the public responds with a huge outpouring of support for environmental protections, these individual messages collectively undercut politicians' attempts to claim otherwise.

What this means is each of us can take a role in shaping the rules our government creates — and ensuring those rules are fair and effective.
