For the last few weeks, thousands of us have been sending letters to Congress telling them to bail out #PeopleNotPolluters. But the pandemic has disrupted daily life for our elected leaders as well, and we’re hearing that most congressional offices are flooded in emails, and don’t have good systems for answering the phones while all their staff are quarantined at home.
Enter the magic of social media, art, and visual storytelling! If you’ve got an account with facebook, a twitter, or instagram (or any other social media platform) use it now to make sure they see and respond to our messages.
The goal is to use your social media channels to send personal messages to your representatives in Congress:
- POST a video of yourself on twitter or facebook with a personalized message to Congress about why congress should put people first and not bail out the Fossil Fuel Industry – make sure to use the hashtag #PeopleNotPolluters so we can find you.
- TWEET at Congresspeople using the sample tweets in this toolkit (or come up with your own!)
- SHARE: Share these designs from the #PeopleNotPolluters & Stop The Money Pipeline Art Kit on social media. make sure to credit the amazing artists and illustrators who made them!

Our environment is important. Please keep the EPA doing their job to protect all of us. Now is not the time to reduce the restrictions.
Let’s concentrate our efforts on ordinary people, not people who are able to withstand the effects of the coronavirus.,
