No Child Left Inside

An enormous step forward for the environmental movement and progressives at large, the No Child Left Inside Act is scheduled for a vote as early as this Tuesday September 9th. Unfamiliar with NCLI? Well hop on over to their website and read up on what will surely be remembered as historic legislation for this Democratic Congress.

While NCLI is expected to pass, it's important to let our elected officials (especially the Republicans) know how important this issue is to us and get as many passing votes for this Bill as possible. Thus an action alert is needed, whereby everyone makes it a point to call their respective representative and voice their approval of H.R. 3036. To make this a bit easier I have included the office phone numbers for each Representative of Indiana's nine districts below.

1D) Peter Visclosky 202-225-2461
2D) Joe Donnelly 202-225-3915
3D) Mark Souder 202-225-4436
4D) Steve Buyer 202-225-5037
5D) Dan Burton 202-225-2276
6D) Mike Pence 202-225-3021
7D) Andre Carson 202-225-4011
8D) Brad Ellsworth 202-225-4639
9D) Baron Hill        202-225-5315

Read H.R. 3036 in its entirety here. Plus check out the video below which helps elucidate the need for environmental education legislation.
