Just passing along a request to act on your convictions that our young people (your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews) need the same contact with the outdoors as you enjoyed long ago. Please take a moment to call or email your state representatives.Â Â
Dear (Fragments Reader),
Thanks to all the emails and phone calls you’ve been making to your representatives, the No Child Left Inside Act will now finally be brought to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives for a vote.
This week, the House is scheduled to vote on this important bill, which will strengthen and expand environmental education in our nation’s schools.
Please take just a few minutes to call your representative, and ask them to vote ‘YES’ to the No Child Left Inside Act.
In the next 30 years, today’s children will inherit a world of environmental challenges. Yet, our schools are being pushed to cut environmental education, field trips and other outdoor activities.
To secure our children’s future we need to prepare them to understand and inspire them to preserve our natural world.
Please speak up to ensure your representative does their part to help reconnect our kids to nature.
Thanks so much,
Online Grassroots Coordinator
