Contacting your representative sounds scary if you don’t know what to do. If you’re able, you can call your senator and let them know how you feel about the climate crisis. The Climate Museum, a non-profit organization dedicated to the history and cultural impact of the climate crisis, offers a step-by-step guide on calling your representative. This script can be adjusted to your feelings on relevant environmental issues, whether that be on the local, state, or national level.
Here's just one example of calling your representative. There's plenty of examples online if you're still nervous and want to see more phone calls in action.
Community organizing is just as important as taking individual or political action. Working with others, whether it be your classmates, coworkers, or family members, leaves a lasting impact. You can combine efforts with your community to fight food insecurity while taking ecological stances, like creating a garden with shared responsibility in communal spaces. If you’d like to make environmentally friendly crafts with your friends, you can build bird or bat houses out of sustainable materials. Being eco-conscious can help us create connections and get closer to the people in our lives.
