Voice Your Opinion
Let your representatives know how you feel about the issues. Next time you hear someone complain about rotten politicians, tell them to do the same. Politicians can´t vote in your direction if they don't know which way you want them to go and why.
Step 1: Know the issue. What legislation is coming to a vote soon? Are there environmental implications, even if it is not a strictly environmental initiative?
Step 2: Locate your representatives. Get their contact details. You can phone, email, or write a letter.
Step 3: Write your message. Be brief and to the point. Reference specific legislation if possible. State your vote on the legislation/issue and your reasoning. Keep it to one page only. Write letters for both national and local representatives. The more people who know, the better.
