Call to Action: Feb. 1, 2017

If you are in southern New Mexico, call Rep. Steve Pearce to oppose HR 621, which would allow more than 3 million acres of public land to be sold. Learn more at http://outdoor-society.com/americas-public-lands-under-attack-hr-621/. The following sample scripts are from the Outdoor Society.

The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Natural Resources, whose members include  Pearce, of Congressional District 2.

If Pearce represents you, call him at 855-4-PEARCE (732723) (Socorro) or 855-4-PEARCE (732723) or (202) 225-2365 (DC).

Sample script:
I’m _____, a constituent of Congressman Pearce. I am calling in regards to HR 621. The public lands in our district are incredibly important and the loss of these public lands would be devastating for our local and state economies. The Department of the Interior estimates that $16.9 billion is spent in local economies across the country from people visiting national lands and over $600 billion in benefits to the outdoor community. I urge  Congressman Pearce to vote against HR 621 to keep much needed revenue and jobs in our communities.

If you have friends in Pearce’s district, encourage them to call, too.

After you call, post on social media.
