We recently introduced you to a new member of the PA IPL family: Chelsea Jackson. Chelsea is with us for a short three months (August, September and October) to help make sure our elected officials hear loudly and clearly from communities and people of faith at congressional Town Halls about the importance of policies that protect public health.
We want our Senators and Congressmen to know that protecting communities from the assaults on public health that would result from dismantling environmental safeguards —including the critical ‘Referees and Guardrails’ safeguards provided by the Environmental Protection Agency— is a moral imperative. Chelsea is working with us as a Project Coordinator to provide messaging guidance and logistical support for members of faith communities to speak to decision makers. Chelsea is well suited to her new role: she spent the past four years serving as an assistant pastor in a United Methodist Church, dedicated to service, social activism and environmental justice.
With Chelsea’s help and commitment, PA IPL has created a Town Hall Toolkit … and now a Beyond the Town Hall Toolkit to help with visit and calls.
In addition, keep an eye out for emails from Chelsea that share important information about Town Halls in your neighborhood. Or – don’t wait! Chelsea welcomes your questions and ideas, so feel free to reach out to her.
