Sample script (and speak from the heart)
“I’m a constituent and I’m calling to tell [Rep. X] to protect the Boundary Waters from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining on the Wilderness edge. The Boundary Waters is the most visited Wilderness area in America and has come under direct threat today from an outrageous bill introduced by Representative Tom Emmer. I’m asking [Rep. X] to oppose this bill (H.R. 3905) and support the current study federal agencies are already conducting to determine whether the Boundary Waters watershed is the wrong place for sulfide-ore copper mining. #savetheBWCA #boundarywaters #wildernessyear
