I am making a commitment to raise my voice about the urgent need to address climate change and will contact my senators, representative, and the White House *by phone* an average of one out of every seven days–so at least 52 calls. I started today by adding the DC and local office phone numbers to my contact list, and then made my first calls to Senator Hickenlooper and Senator Bennet! I regularly send emails and letters and sign petitions to my elected representatives, but only rarely pick up the phone. Phone calls have a greater impact and for the shmita year I’m making that a priority! I will be getting ideas on what is timely and most relevant to talk about from Jewish Earth Alliance, Dayenu, 350.org, Food and Water Watch, Interfaith Power & Light, Hazon’s advocacy alerts, and others.
