Tell the Senate: Pass the RECLAIM Act

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Tell the Senate to pass the RECLAIM Act--call 202-816-6137Together, we have done the research. We have laid the groundwork. We have engaged our communities and built support. Together, we have affirmed that the RECLAIM Act is a good opportunity for our communities!

The RECLAIM Act would bring $1 billion — money that has already been collected from coal companies — back to these communities to repurpose abandoned mines while immediately creating jobs and supporting long-term economic development.

We need Congress to pass RECLAIM as part of the federal funding bill, and the deadline is this month. That’s why this week is extra critical! It’s an easy lift for the lawmakers, they just need to feel lots of public pressure to prioritize doing right by communities impacted by the coal industry. Your call will help make that happen.

It’s easy to make the call. 
Just dial 202-816-6137.

When you call this number, you will hear a recorded message that will give you instructions for what to say to your U.S. Senator and then you will be patched through to your Senator’s D.C. office. The message to leave with them is simple:

“Pass the House version of the RECLAIM Act now.”

Call now: 202-816-6137

IF YOU ARE IN KENTUCKY:

Call Mitch McConnell. Senator McConnell needs to feel lots of pressure from Kentuckians. He needs calls from grassroots folks — lots of them — and to feel public pressure in the media. In addition, we are calling him out in Lexington! Join us tomorrow outside the Senator’s office:
