When doing outreach and collecting these letters - it works well to get them on the spot. If people want a bit more time you could arrange to pick them up later or designate an address where they may be mailed. In the blank space in the first sentence after “and I am,” let people know that they can put in whatever term they’d like. For example, they might writealarmed, concerned, somewhat worried, upset. When the chapter leader receives the letters he/she or a designee will see that 3 copies of each signed letter are made - one each for the constituent's representative and two senators and arrange to have them delivered.
People who complete this letter are added to the CCL National email list to receive further information and opportunities for involvement with CCL unless they opt not to share their email. They may also receive a thank you and check in call to see if they have any questions, info they would like to share and/or interest in further involvement with CCL.
Ever wonder what a stack of more than 1600 letters would look like? Now you know! The stack of Constituent Comment Letters pictured above is just what each of our Wisconsin Senators received for CCL's Congressional Education Day, November 15, 2016.
The file available for download and document pictured below are the same.
Some things to keep in mind when using the postcards
It is important to check that both sides have been filled out
Usually only the name of the congressperson is needed for the address because we collect these for hand delivery or to send them together with a letter.
These do require people to express their support for Carbon Fee and Dividend. Some people may not know enough to do this yet. In this case the Constituent Comment Letter is something they could do instead.
