Get Involved

"When we start to act, hope is everywhere. 

So instead of looking for hope, look for action.

Then hope will come."

Greta Thunberg

Getting Started

Spend some time poking around on this website. You'll quickly get a sense of the

broad messages, and ideas about how to solve the problem.  Start with:

  1. Read our 2018 Letter to the Legislature.

  2. Watch the this video.

  3. Learn about where your voice is needed today!

You're ready to go!

Talking with Legislators

Reaching out to your representatives is easy. More likely than not, you'll find

that they want to hear what you have to say. They do what they do

because they care about the issues and their communities. 

Contacting them is the single most important thing you can do.

Talk about your concerns. Talk about a few of the points you learned above.

That's all you need to start.

You can quickly find their contact information here.

Write a 'Letter to the Editor'

Yup - writing a letter to the editor is still one of the most powerful

things you can do. If you go to your local paper's website, you can easily find the

information about how to submit a letter.  Look for the longer submission options

(a "Commentary" or similar) that will give you more space.

People (especially legislators) pay attention to these.
