Jennifer Haverkamp—EDF's own former International Climate Program Director—has been nominated to be Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs. Her confirmation should be simple. She is experienced, and has dedicated her entire career to environmental causes. The Senate Foreign Affairs Committee has scheduled a vote on her nomination for the week of October 19th—but Senator Barrasso (R-WY) is on a crusade to block the vote by distorting her record.
As a Wisconsin resident, you have a uniquely important voice on this issue. Your Senator, Ron Johnson, is on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee and will have an opportunity to support her in Committee and pave the way for her nomination to be approved by the Senate.
Make sure Senator Johnson hears from you—tell him not to let politics get in the way of environmental progress.
Please support Jennifer Haverkamp's nomination
Dear Senator Johnson,
Thank you,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
