No Child Left Inside Act needs your support

As the Senate HELP Committee prepares to mark up ESEA legislation beginning Wednesday, they need to hear from you TODAY. 

Encourage the Senate Help Committee to include NCLI as they reauthorize ESEA.
 
This week, the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) will mark up a draft of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

Please call your Senator if s/he is on the HELP Committee TODAY (or as late as Wednesday) to urge their support for the inclusion of the NCLI Act (S.1372) in the reauthorization of ESEA. A phone call will take you just 3 minutes, and we have provided a script below to make it easy!

This is a very big week for all of us, and together we can make a difference! Thank you for taking action today.

Phone Call Instructions for Senators on the HELP Committee
Find your Senator’s DC Office phone number on the attached list of phone numbers for HELP Committee members.

· Always leave a voice message if you don’t get the staffer, be sure to hit the key points and leave the contact # for Sen Reed’s Office
· If you have a question that you cannot answer, write it down, reach out to us with the question, and let them know you’ll get back to them – this happens all the time, you don’t have to know it all!
· If your Senator is already a co-sponsor (noted on the attached contact list), thank staff for their support, but continue with the script and remind them that we’d like their support at mark up.

Call Script – you can literally just read from this, or adjust as you see fit:
 
My name is [NAME] calling from [ORGANIZATION NAME IF APPLICABLE] in [LOCATION] to speak with the staffer who handles education issues for the Senator.
[Once transferred, reintroduce yourself to the education staffer (or on voicemail if necessary), mention that you are a constituent of the Senator and if applicable the name of your organization]
[SAY THE FOLLOWING] I’m calling to ask that member SENATOR NAME support including environmental education during the mark up of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act scheduled for October 18th.  Specifically, we’d like to see the main provisions of the No Child Left Inside Act – bill # S. 1372 – be imbedded in ESEA. The main provisions include incentive funding tied to State Environmental Literacy Plans.  [THIS IS THE KEY MESSAGE, SAY THIS FIRST]
[YOU THEN MAY WISH TO SHARE WHY EE IS SO IMPORTANT] The No Child Left Inside Act will provide critical tools for a 21st Century, innovative workforce by providing students with the skills to understand complex environmental issues so they may make informed decisions in their own lives and find solutions for real world challenges facing us as a nation.
[LET THEM KNOW WHO TO CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION] Feel free to contact  Moira Lenehan Razzuri in Senator Jack Reed’s  office for more information.  Her phone number is 202-224-4642.  [IF LEAVING A MESSAGE] I can be reached at [PHONE #].
