Grassroots Activists to Deliver Thousands of Calls for Bold Climate Action
Montpelier, VT – On Monday, November 30, representatives of the Energy Independent Vermont coalition will deliver thousands of postcards and petitions to legislators at the Statehouse demanding that they “tackle global warming and save Vermonters money by reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.”
Vermonters in every House and Senate district in the state are calling on their elected representatives to take bold climate action “by putting a price on carbon pollution and creating an Energy Independence Fund.” The Fund will help Vermonters save money, reduce dependence on fossil fuels and create jobs.
What: Energy Independent Vermont petition delivery event
When: Monday, November 30, 12:30 PM
Where: Vermont Statehouse steps (Cedar Creek Room if inclement weather)
Speakers: Representatives of the business community, low-income advocates, religious leaders, town energy committees, and community organizers
Visuals: Many stacks of postcards 6’ high
Additional materials – including a policy overview and in-depth economic analysis – will be available to media in attendance.
The Energy Independent Vermont tax reform plan will create polluter-funded investments to save Vermonters money on our fuel bills and reduce taxes on Vermonters and businesses. With more money in our pockets, Vermonters will spend more at local businesses – growing our economy and creating new jobs.
