Urgent Action Needed on Climate Resolution in Congress
A Congressional Resolution on climate just introduced by Congressman Chris Gibson, Republican of New York, may be the start of real progress in Congress.
There has been a seemingly insurmountable wall between Republicans and Democrats. Now, in a remarkable breakthrough, ten additional House Republicans have found the political courage to put their names on Gibson's Resolution. It calls for work to begin on economically viable solutions. It also affirms a moral responsibility to steward our environment and economy for vulnerable peoples now and generations in the future.

YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED -- this may be one of the most important things you can do about the climate crisis all year: Please call or email Nebraska's two Republican House members, and ask them to read the Gibson Resolution and consider co-signing it. Of course, it's better if you're from their District.
The Pope's address to Congress is on Thursday, so please try to get your calls done before Thursday.
