Mobile activism: oppose the Hudson amendment

Write an email from your phone, help protect the Atlantic

TODAY: write to your representative and ask them to oppose Hudson’s pro-drilling amendment (House Amendment 623 (code:A093)).

Volunteer from your desk: find phone numbers

Help fight the Rehoboth ocean outfall pipe from your computer or phone

(1) Identify phone numbers for property owners in the city based the owner’s name and address. We’ll send you names and addresses; you only need to use to find their phone number.

(2) Call property owners to tell them about the vote this Saturday to decide if the city will borrow the money to build the pipe.

Can you offer 10 minutes to help find phone numbers or call property owners? Email
