Make Your Voice Heard! At All Government Levels!

Want our government to take climate action? We must let our representatives know! You can start by calling their office, sending an email, or attending a meeting.  Here’s how.

Preparing your Script

When calling a legislator’s office, whether you get a live person or a recording, these tips apply:

  • State your name and where you are calling from.

  • Make your comments short and to the point.

  • If you want a response, state that you want a response and leave your phone number or email.

Sample:

“Hello, this is (name), a voter in (your town/area), Washington. I’m calling today to urge you to vote yes/no on (fill in the blank). It means a lot to me because (why?) Please let me know how you vote. My phone number is (360) 123-4567. Thank you.”

The Washington State 350.org groups are working together to make it simple to demand climate action from state lawmakers, through their Civic Action Team (CAT) program. Sign up for CAT to follow the progress of bills and send messages to your legislative representatives and other leaders. You will receive about 2 emails a week with a list of timely actions you can take.  Each action outlines the important facts about the legislation and provides a link to the citizen's input form.

You can also contact your representatives directly. Island County is in the 10th Legislative District. Our State legislators are:
