Dear Senator [your district’s State Senator],
Dear Representative [your district’s State House Representative],
As a student living in your district, and as an Oregonian concerned about the climate crisis, I would like to request that you make climate education a priority during this legislative session. Specifically, please review and consider supporting SB-854, a bill for comprehensive K-12 climate change education in Oregon. Senators Manning and Patterson are its chief sponsors, and a number of co-sponsors have already signed on. A brief flyer designed for legislators that outlines the legislation is available at tinyurl.com/oece3. The pool of testimony is growing, and a video with some examples from Oregon students and educators is available at tinyurl.com/oecest.
Thank you for your service to our state, and for your commitment to ensuring that Oregon students are fully informed about climate change and how they can help address the issues we face as a state and global community.
