Two ways to support NCLI in August

From NCLI Coalition:


Write to your Members of Congress. If you have not done so already, please take time to thank those who have already agreed to co-sponsor the No Child Left Inside Act and urge those who have not yet signed on to do so now! You can draft your own letter or personalize the template letters thanking current co-sponsors and encouraging new ones found here.

Connect with Congress during the August Congressional Recess. Members of Congress often use the month of August to visit with their constituents, learn more about issues close to home, and participate in public events while Congress is out of session. Please help us build support for environmental education and No Child Left Inside during this opportune time by doing one or both of the following:

·         Schedule an in-person meeting with your Senator or Representative or their staff to talk about the NCLI Act and its value to you as a constituent. Bring examples of quality EE programs with you to share, as well as this NCLI fact sheet, to leave behind.

·         Invite your Senator or Representative or their staff to visit a program or attend an event that highlights successful environmental education in your community.

Please help us build support for No Child Left Inside by contacting members of Congress between now and Labor Day! We can't do it without you!

Thank you for all you do!
