Dear Climate Health Now Community:
CHN is excited to roll-out the The Health of Humanity Depends on Healing Democracy - a sign-on Letter to U.S. Senators. Please take 5 minutes now to read the letter and sign-on using the google form linked below if you agree. Time is short to gather signatures and submit to Senators before the crucial vote - which could be before the August recess. Then please take a moment to share with other health professionals in your circles to sign as well! That is critical to getting the kind of numbers we need to have an impact. A sample email and sample text is included below to make it quick and easy. Our goal is to get signers from every state - at least one for each Senator, but as many total as possible.
1- Click here to go to google form to sign-on and to view the full letter.
2 - Ask others to sign and share with an email and follow up with test or phone call if possible
-Please think of 3-5 individual health professionals you could email to share the letter. It's especially helpful if you can get signers from other states - such as AZ, WV, etc.
SAMPLE SCRIPT that you could EMAIL:
