Over the last 10 months Boone has built an amazing, highly motivated army of 1.4 million people who want to see energy independence for America now. The army includes 14 governors, 7 US Senators, 52 congressmen and over 185 mayors. The Pickens Plan is also supported by organizations such as Owens Corning, the American Wind Energy Association, and American Electric Power, amongst others.
A few pieces of the Pickens Plan were addressed in the stimulus package, but we're really looking forward to the development of energy-specific legislation that will hopefully make the Pickens Plan a reality once and for all. We think the months of March and April are going to be critical.
The cornerstone of our efforts will be a “virtual march on Washington” on April 1-3. We’ll work with a coalition of supporters, and Boone’s army, over this three-day period to push energy legislation over the goal line. Our plan is to generate an overwhelming number of actions online to urge Congress and the White House to support the remaining aspects of the Pickens Plan.
We’re asking you to join our coalition of supporters and engage your members and/or employees in joining our virtual march on Washington.
Specifically, we’ll ask you to:
• Allow us to list your organization as a supporter on the Pickens Plan website.
• Send an announcement email to your members/employees about your organization’s support of the Pickens Plan and the “virtual march.”
• The week of the march, send an email encouraging your members/employees to participate in the “virtual march” by sending emails and making phone calls to their Members of Congress.
Can we count on your support?
