Make plans for November 8 Congressional Call-in
LOBBY ACTION
Imagine that the lobby team for your member of Congress hears at the start of their lobby meeting: “We got so many calls in support of carbon fee and dividend on Wednesday!” Wouldn’t that be helpful!   
That’s why we are asking you to organize your group, friends and family to call their Representative and Senators on Wednesday, November 8th, to ask them to enact carbon fee and dividend. If they don’t get through on November 8th, they can leave a message in the evening or try calling on November 9th. Calling on the 8th will allow time for tallies to be communicated through to the Congressional office.
We will send an email to every one of our supporters on November 7th, and a text action alert (http://citizensclimatelobby.org/text/) to everyone signed up to receive them on November 8th. But it’s your personal outreach that will make the most difference. Set a group goal and a personal goal: how many calls will your member of Congress receive?
To make it easy and to track the number of calls we’re generating, we encourage using the online action tool on CCL’s website that is specifically set up for the November 8th Call-in. But you may find it helpful to also request that your volunteers & friends let you know when they have called.
At your meeting
1.      Set a group goal and a personal goal for how many calls you will generate.
2.       Ask everyone present to take out their calendar and put in when they will call Congress on November 8th, taking into account the time zone difference in Washington D.C. Go to cclusa.org/callcongress for the script, phone numbers and to log your call.
3.       Ask everyone present to write down the names of other people they will ask to do the same thing and who they will personally remind early on the November 8th.
4.       Set up a system for people to report how many calls were made. It could be via Facebook or a shared spreadsheet or a central email address. This will help you measure your progress.
5.       Assign someone to send an email to your group roster on November 7th asking them to call the next day. You might also send a “save the date” to your group right away and then remind them early on the 8th.
Additional resources
·         On Facebook: We’ve created an event page at cclusa.org/ContactCongress that you can “Share” with your friends. Click that you're “Going” to the event and “Invite friends”!
On CCL Community: We have a resources page on Community http://community.citizensclimatelobby.org/resources/call-in-day/
where you’ll find the suggested script for phone calls, a graphic to share with others, and a suggested email to use to invite your friends to participate in the call-in.
