Micah Buckwalter, a sophomore who met the office of Sen. Mark Warner, Virginia, said:
Climate change is something that I am very passionate about fighting, but sometimes it feels overwhelming to think of how much destruction has already been done and how much needs to happen for us to make significant change. Through this experience, however, I realized that advocating [to] our senators and representatives to show them how important this issue really is can be a great way to have a real impact.
He was part of a class taught by Clara Weybright, a Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions Climate Futures fellow, in partnership with Mennonite Central Committee. She taught EMU students how to advocate to the U.S. Congress for action on climate change and encourages others to follow their examples.
