> Hello EDF Ambassadors! 
>  
> First, let me introduce myself: I’m Heather Shelby, EDF’s Manager of Grassroots Organizing & Activism in our Washington, DC office, and I’m helping to cover the EDF Ambassadors program while Alysa Perez is out on her maternity leave. Please feel free to reach out any time if you have any questions, or need any info at all!
>  
> I’m writing today because an email just crossed my desk letting me know about an Emergency Climate Rally on July 19th at the Massachusetts State House at 12 noon. If you’re free to attend, please RSVP  <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbTfC-Dyler1dTUFtXFBKoAkPHT4CkWhZ13CRh57JBzSv3Fw/viewform>at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbTfC-Dyler1dTUFtXFBKoAkPHT4CkWhZ13CRh57JBzSv3Fw/viewform
>  
> Why the emergency rally? Because the Massachusetts House has failed to meaningfully address climate change so far this session after the Senate unanimously passed a bill to increase clean energy, expand access to solar projects to renters and low income communities, and create a real plan to protect Massachusetts from climate change. If the House doesn’t act, you could miss out on all those crucial benefits.
>  
> Local environmental groups are asking for your help: 
>  
> 1)      They’d like you to join the rally at the State House on July 19th to demonstrate the need for climate action. If you’re available, show your support for strong climate policies by RSVP’ing today <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbTfC-Dyler1dTUFtXFBKoAkPHT4CkWhZ13CRh57JBzSv3Fw/viewform> at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbTfC-Dyler1dTUFtXFBKoAkPHT4CkWhZ13CRh57JBzSv3Fw/viewform
> 2)      If you can make it, make your voice even stronger by bringing copies of a picture of a family member or friend, and write on the back of the photo why you care for this person – and why you want to protect them from climate change.
> 3)      Can’t make it to the rally? You can still help! Use the RSVP form to commit to calling your state representative <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbTfC-Dyler1dTUFtXFBKoAkPHT4CkWhZ13CRh57JBzSv3Fw/viewform> (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbTfC-Dyler1dTUFtXFBKoAkPHT4CkWhZ13CRh57JBzSv3Fw/viewform), and GreenNewton will send you a call script to help you every step of the way (and if you run into any issues, feel free to reach out for help!).
