Subject line: Invitation to meet on 30 June – virtual lobby for climate,
nature and people / The Time is Now virtual lobby for a healthy, green
and fair recovery
Dear [Alan Mak / Flick Drummond MP],
My name is [your name] and I am a constituent. Thank you for your continued hard work representing [Havant /Meon Valley], especially during a time such as this. I know your current focus will be supporting those most affected in our area and continuing your Parliamentary work as far as possible.
I would like to invite you to meet me and other constituents as part of a virtual lobby for a healthy, green and fair recovery from coronavirus on 30 June. The UK is at a turning point. As we build back from the current health crisis, we have the opportunity to tackle climate change and nature’s decline, and rebuild a resilient economy that benefits everyone in society. Or we can lock in pollution for decades to come.
You may remember The Time is Now mass lobby last year when 12,000 people flooded the streets of Westminster to ask for action on the climate and nature emergency. We can’t meet in person this time, so please send me an online conferencing link (e.g. Zoom) and a meeting time on 30 June convenient to you.
You may receive similar requests from other constituents. I would be happy to join those people in the same virtual meeting so we can speak to you at the same time, if that is more convenient for you. I know you’re busy, so even 20 minutes of your time would be appreciated.
Please confirm the time of our call as soon as is convenient.
