If you can't get through to one office, try another. There is no benefit to calling one office over another. Leaving a voicemail is as good as reaching a live person. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.

I’m calling to ask that Senator Feinstein support Senator Markey’s resolution for a Green New Deal. We have less than 12 years to stop climate change and it’s going to take a massive effort. It’s important that we act quickly, boldly and decisively. Can I count on Senator Feinstein to vote YES on Senate Joint Resolution 8 (a.k.a. the Green New Deal)?
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he’s going to put the Green New Deal resolution up for a vote in the senate. Senator Kamala Harris has declared her support for the Green New Deal (thank you, Kamala!), but Senator Feinstein has not.
Last week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein unveiled her own Green proposal. We’ve had a chance to give it a look-see and can say without equivocation that it is inadequate and incremental, when what we need is bold and sweeping action to address the climate crisis. We’ve heard that Feinstein intends to vote PRESENT on Senate Joint Resolution 8 (the Green New Deal) this week. This is not good enough. We need Feinstein to sideline her proposal and unite with Democrats by voting YES on Senate Joint Resolution 8 (a.k.a. the Green New Deal) .
On February 7, 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey introduced a resolution for the Green New Deal. They were joined by 11 other senators and over 60 members of the House as original cosponsors.
The twin resolutions for a Green New Deal introduced by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Senator Ed Markey are the first to tackle climate change in line with what science and justice demand.
The Green New Deal is a package of policies that would be aimed at decarbonizing the US economy, drawing down and capturing greenhouse gases, and promoting economic, racial, and environmental justice and equality. This may sound like an ambitious set of goals—because it is! It’s important that we act quickly and decisively to address climate change.
Like the original New Deal, the Green New Deal represents a massive investment in America’s people and infrastructure—but with the additional goals of spending on projects that will transition America to a green economy, and ensuring that these investments are targeted to promote “social, economic, racial, regional, and gender-based justice and equality.”
