We invite you to get involved:
- Contact one of our chapters to get involved in your local community — or to find out how to start your own chapter.
- Write a letter to the editor to your local newspaper.
- Let your public officials know that you want them to act to get explosive oil trains out of our neighborhoods.
How To Contact Your Public Officials
It’s easy to contact public officials. What you say does not have to be perfect or cover everything! Just speak from the heart. Share concerns YOU have about any of the following issue or others: safety, flooding, pollution, impact on wildlife and environmentally sensitive areas, vibration, noise, blocked crossings, access to recreation, property values, and/or tax revenues.
Make it easy on yourself. Write an email. Before sending, copy the message so you can paste it into emails to other public officials. Making things happen depends on all of us contacting public officials.
