We need your help and your stories to protect the Tongass - hearing from constituents is one of the best ways to influence what happens in DC. Take a minute this week and call the offices of Senators Murkowski, Sullivan, and Rep. Young, and tell them to back off their attacks on the Tongass!
Senator Lisa Murkowski - (202)-224-6665
Senator Dan Sullivan - (202)-224-3004
Representative Don Young - (202) 225-5765
But don’t stop there! Minds in the Alaskan offices are largely made up already, and our allies in other places are often best-placed to advocate for the Tongass.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY) - (202) 224-6542
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA) - (202) 225-4965
Senator Patrick Leahy (VT) - (202) 224-4242
Senator Dick Durbin (IL) - (202) 224-2152
Senator Maria Cantwell (WA) - (202) 224-3441
