Small but impactful groups of republicEns in districts across America can set into motion a free-enterprise solution to climate change.
Conservatives run Congress. That doesn't just mean that Paul Ryan is in charge, it means conservative and libertarian constituents are really important. It's a generational opportunity to prove conservative principles in action can solve huge problems, none bigger than climate change. But Congress cares only about what you care about. And they don't think you care about solving climate change or leading the world in clean energy innovation. You have the power to change that. The republicEn community exists to amplify your voice.
Get to know the republicEn community. We're diverse but unified by the principle that conservatives have both the moral duty and the free-enterprise tools to lead America and the world to a pro-growth climate policy. Our team is highly responsive on social platforms. Expect a lot of love back for tagging @republicEn or using #ecoRight and #areyouEn in your social posts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Connecting with republicEn also gets you ClimateEye, our one-of-a-kind service to keep you apprised of all the thinking and and news on the ecoRight. It's free and awesome (and republicEn members can opt-in to local or national email alerts from ClimateEye).
Our community needs active members. Each republicEn brings different skills and interests to the table. Our local communities lean heavily on a few dedicated leaders, but we also need numbers. Our goal is to reach 10,000 republicEns in 2017 -- that's 10,000 profiles of constituents standing up for conservative climate leadership. Our members are offered opportunities to become engaged in programming, media relations, social media, and educational outreach to their Member of Congress about the opportunity to lead on free-enterprise solutions to climate change.
Are you a social media maven? We have a team of republicEns who help curate our social-media presence and lead the cheering section for ecoRight leaders. We need content creators, connectors, and influencers to spread ecoRight content and build bridges.
CHANGE THE NARRATIVE
Posting on social media, writing letters to the editor and op-eds, and giving interviews to journalists are a few important ways republicEns are changing the narrative from one of conservative denial and inaction to a story of conservative solutions and momentum.
republicEn is both a virtual community and an off-line community. We're most productive and have the most fun where republicEns know one another personally. The best way to build our local communities is to gather socially for field trips, coffees, happy hours, and meals. We rely on republicEn members to take the initiative to host these gatherings. Our team will provide resources and help you invite fellow republicEns.
MEET YOUR REPRESENTATIVE
It sounds like a big deal, but remember that your member of Congress works for you! Meeting your Representative face-to-face in a small group of republicEns is an extraordinarily powerful action to inspire Congressional leadership. The experience is fun and low pressure, but over time you will equip your Representative with the courage and knowledge to take a stand on climate. republicEn especially needs committed volunteers to help coordinate these meetings with our local republicEn members and your Rep's district office.
A coalition of congressional conservatives put forth a free-enterprise climate policy to level the playing field for clean energy and replace America's defunct regulatory climate policy. Our approach is a transparent carbon tax that returns revenue to taxpayers. It's a simple, pro-growth solutions with YUGE benefits to American families. Learn more here.
Once conservatives unite behind a better way on climate, Congress has the votes to pass meaningful reform. Conservatives hold the cards and have the leverage, but with a strong proposal on the table, Republicans and Democrats will come together to mark a new era of American environmental and energy leadership.
America is awesome. We've led the world for freedom and justice, now it's time to light the path forward on climate.
