Call your Congressperson and Senator Schumer and demand that they reject Joe Manchin’s dirty “permitting reform” bill, which is designed to expand fuel fossil infrastructure and specifically approve a West Virginia pipeline that communities have aggressively opposed. Use the script and number below
CALL 1: Senator Chuck Schumer: 855-980-2321
CALL 2: Your Congressional Representative: 917-791-2257 (this dialer from People Vs Fossil Fuels will ask for your zip code and connect you to the right office!)
“Hi, my name is [your name]. I am calling to demand that [Senator Schumer / Representative X] oppose the Permitting Reform side deal with Senator Manchin, the largest recipient of fossil fuel funds in the entire U.S. Congress.
We have worked too hard in New York to fight fracked gas infrastructure to risk the industry fast-tracking dangerous new fossil fuel projects, gut decades old environmental review processes for infrastructure projects, and silence the public’s voice in decision making.
These projects will hurt frontline communities most of all — this deal is the opposite of climate justice. We owe these communities a lot– we owe Manchin nothing.
Please call me back to let me know whether you will stand up against fossil fuel interests with us. My number is [your phone number]”
