The Dallas City Council is about to vote (scheduled for Wednesday, April 22nd) on the Dallas Comprehensive Environment & Climate Action Plan (CECAP). CECAP will create a comprehensive roadmap that outlines the specific activities that the city can undertake to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve environmental quality in the city. It will build upon our understanding of the climate and other environmental challenges facing Dallas, existing efforts by the City and other stakeholders, information synthesized in the new City of Dallas greenhouse gas inventory, and with community input. The Plan will focus on activities that can achieve the greatest emission reductions and deliver the most benefits to communities most affected by climate change impacts Send your Councilman a message and let them know you encourage them to VOTE YES on CECAP.

Here is a sample email you can send: Dear _____, Sending a word of encouragement to you and the Dallas City Council to vote YES to move forward with CECAP. It is so important for our city to join the group of C40 cities addressing the climate crisis. Incredible work has been done by the city over the last year to develop a plan that moves our city in the right direction. There will always be more that we can do, but the CECAP plan that has been generated is a critical first step in our commitment to a responsible approach to address the climate crisis.
