Educate Congress about Cape Wind now

What you can do today to help to ensure a clean air tommorrow

By Barbara Hill and Jennifer Filiault

With clean energy legislation on the horizon and the end of the permitting process for Cape Wind looking nearer each day, there has never been a more important time for citizens to continue the practice of civic engagement.


Educate YOUR congressman

Soon Members of Congress will return to their district offices for the Spring District Work Period, when they will be available to meet with their constituents. As part of a coordinated action, CLEAN members will be setting up these meetings all over the country. This is an important chance to advocate for clean energy policies with our elected officials and make certain they understand where people stand on these issues. They need to hear that citizens expect them to move decisively towards a clean energy economy.

Here in Massachusetts, we have constituents setting up meetings with 6 of our 10 Representatives: Barney Frank, Niki Tsongas, John Tierney, Mike Capuano, Stephen Lynch, and William Delahunt.  We are hoping to have two CPN members attend each of these meetings (as well as set up meetings in the other 4 districts of Massachusetts). 

If you are available to attend or lead a meeting, please contact Jennifer Filiault at 617-243-3514 or [email protected].

You can also visit www.theclean.org/edcong3.html for more information about this coordinated action.

For a clean energy future,

Barbara Hill, Executive Director
Jennifer Filiault, Field Organizer
