Cosponsor the Climate Change Health Protection and Promotion Act

Dear [Decision Maker],

As public a health advocate, I am writing to ask you to cosponsor the Climate Change Health Protection and Promotion Act which was introduced by Sen. Edward Markey and Rep. Matt Cartwright. The bill would help to protect the public from the negative health effects due to climate change.



Please stand up for public health and and cosponsor this legislation to give the public health and medical community the tools they need to protect the public's health from the impacts of climate change.

Sincerely,
