Hello. My name is ____ and I am calling from (city/town). I’m a member of [congregation] and inspired by my faith values to take action on climate. 

To meet this moment, we need to go BIG on climate, that’s why I’m calling on you to swiftly pass the full $3.5 trillion recovery reconciliation budget with big and bold investments in climate, good jobs, and justice.

Thank you.
