Maine: Ask Sen. Collins to support Green Climate Fund

Dear friends in Maine,

At 2 p.m. today the Senate Appropriations Committee will decide on funding for the Green Climate Fund for 2017.

U.S. Senator Susan Collins of Maine, a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, needs to hear from you! 

(Click here to read why we and more than 100 religious organizations are urging Congress to support the Green Climate Fund.)

Please call Senator Collins NOW!

877-429-0678 to reach the U.S. Capitol Switchboard, when prompted, press or say "One" for the Senate and say "Maine" or enter your zip code, to reach Senator Collin's office. When Senator Collin's staff answers, ask to leave a message for Senator Collins.

Here is a sample script: 

"My name is _______ and I live in _______. I am calling to urge you to support the Obama Administration's funding request for the Green Climate Fund which you are considering today as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Climate change is an urgent moral issue. I hope you will uphold our country's commitments made in the Paris climate agreement, to help nations most vulnerable to climate change. Please vote today for the Administration's funding request for fiscal year 2017 for the Green Climate Fund. Thank you."
