Reach out to Congressional offices by Friday, March 6



Dear EE Advocates, Here we go! This call to action marks the beginning of a very quick advocacy campaign that is crucial to securing federal funding for EE in FY 2021. We’ve pulled together all of the information you need to take action.

Congressional appropriations subcommittees will start to meet in mid-March to allocate funds for the entire U.S. budget, including some small but critical funding for environmental education at EPA and NOAA. We need you to ask your Representatives and Senators to (electronically) sign letters circulated by their colleagues to support this important funding. This year the EE community is asking for small increases for these programs to make up for past cuts, and because our work is more important now than ever before.

Our top priority is to engage every one of the more than 170 Representatives who have supported EE in the past. These are the easiest calls to make, and most are likely to support this funding again, but only if they are asked! Even if your Reps have not been on board before, you should definitely call because it’s quite possible they simply haven’t been asked!

Due to internal deadlines for these Congressional appropriations requests, we are asking that you make calls by Friday, March 6th. Offices are receiving many funding-related requests during the busy appropriations season, so it’s important that they hear from the EE community as early in the process as possible. Please consider making a call TODAY!

Our FY21 Appropriations Campaign Guide has everything you need, including sample telephone scripts. You can also check out NAAEE’s 2020 policy agenda to see what else is on the horizon.

As always, please reach out with any questions about the ask, how to get started, or feedback you receive in making your calls.

Thank you very much for all you do to advance environmental education! Brock Adler, Chair, Advocacy Committee, NAAEE, brockadler@gmail.com Sarah Bodor, Director, Affiliate Relations and Policy, NAAEE, sarah@naaee.org
