Email subject: Support Rep Deb Haaland for Secretary of the Interior

As a constituent in your state, I am writing to urge you to support President Biden’s nomination of Rep. Deb Haaland for Secretary of the Interior. Rep. Haaland has a strong bipartisan record of fighting for the protection of our public lands and waters, climate action, and human rights. As a 35th generation New Mexican, an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna, and businesswoman, she is extraordinarily qualified to oversee our nation’s incredible public lands and waters and fulfill our nation’s treaty and trust responsibilities to 574 sovereign tribal nations. For these reasons and more, I urge you to cast your vote to support Rep. Haaland for Secretary of the Interior.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]
