(Learn to make calls faster! tinyurl.com/make-calls-faster)

#1 – YES on S.1624 Protect Children, Farmers, and Farmworkers from Nerve Agent Pesticides Act (Chlorpyrifos) of 2017 

Minimal Script for Feinstein: I’m calling to ask Sen. [Feinstein] to co-sponsor S1624.

Minimal Script for Harris: I’m calling to thank  Sen. [Harris] for co-sponsoring S1624.

(Additional script if you want more: A pesticide that causes brain damage should have no place in our agricultural industry.)

Check here to see if your senator has already signed on, like our Kamala Harris.)

This pesticide is so dangerous that CA is considering a ban on our own. Our state has opened up a public comment period. Tell them to ban it. 

Here’s the email address: chlorpyrifos@cdpr.ca.gov

#2 – NO on 1460 “Energy and Resources Act”. Stop this Trojan horse full of dirty energy policies

Minimal Script: I’m calling to tell Senator [Feinstein, Harris] to vote “NO” on S1460, the massive energy bill being rushed through the Senate.

(Additional script if you want more: It’s opposed by conservation, water, farming, and even industry groups because it will only increase our country’s dependence on fossil fuels and further endanger the environment.)
