Environment America, with the much appreciated help of the Back Porch
Energy Initiative, has been hard at work here in South Carolina for the
past week working to bring clean energy to the forefront of the
presidential debates. As you know, we are pressuring the presidential
candidates to make clean energy a priority in their campaigns through
contacting them by phone and in person.
State-Wide Campus Call-In Day: In one day students across South Carolina will generate 500 phone calls into the presidential candidates offices urging the candidates to sign Environment America's Clean Energy Pledge. Actions will take place at Coastal Carolina University, University of South Carolina, Clemson College, Furman College, and College of Charleston.
Make A Splash Event: Outside the Democratic Debates on Monday January 21st, Environment America is joining the Heat is On Campaign for a rally before the debates. More information to follow later in the week.
Candidate Events Calendar: We have compiled a list of candidate events and attached the calendar. Please let me know if you would like to receive updates. If you are interested in attending any event you can come by the South Carolina Conservation Voters office at 1226 Pickens St in Columbia to pick up Clean Energy for America signs or if you cannot make it to Columbia just give me a call and I can try to get some down to you. (803-748-5005).
Note: There is also a google calendar. It is called "cleanenergy greenenergy" and can be found on a public search. This calendar will be updated daily.
We would appreciate if all organizations could send an email about our call-in drive to their membership or any listserv that is applicable. The email is attached and you are more than welcome to draft it as needed to fit your organization.
We also ask that each a representative of each organization call on behalf of their group into the candidates' offices to mention their endorsement of the pledge. I understand that many of you have been in touch with these campaign offices but it will bring more attention to the campaign pledge if the directors hear from organizations as well as voters.
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT:
As always, thank you so much for your continued support of this campaign. We appreciate all the hospitality we have received since arriving in South Carolina and look forward to continue working with you.
