How can citizens take action?


Tim Ferriss and his guests discuss several impactful ways citizens can take action:

  1. Call Representatives: Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson emphasizes the power of calling members of Congress to support climate policies. Few people make these calls, so each call carries significant weight. Representatives are required to log and respond to constituent calls, making this an effective way to influence policy 1.

  2. Volunteer for Signature Gathering: Mike Phillips highlights the importance of volunteering as a signature gatherer in direct democracy initiatives, such as petitions to protect wildlife like the gray wolf in Colorado. Signature gathering can be a crucial part of getting issues on the ballot and ensuring public voice matters 2.

By engaging in these activities, citizens can leverage their influence and contribute to meaningful societal changes.
