Call Verizon: Tell them to Hang Up on Climate Change Denial Rally

Talk about crossed wires. As a self-proclaimed eco-friendly company, Verizon has decided to co-sponsor a West Virginia rally to deny global warming.  The "Friends of America" rally is organized by Massey Energy, a union-busting coal company that's a major force of mountaintop removal in Appalachia. Here's more information:

Lots of people have taken action, but these calls are critical.

Here's what to do:

1. Call 908-559-2000 (Verizon's executive offices - you can probably leave a message)
2. Tell them you have a complaint you want to register with the company. If you're a customer of Verizon, mention that.

3. Here's what to say:

"I just heard that Verizon is a sponsor of a rally THIS LABOR DAY in West Virginia that is denying the reality of global warming and obstructing climate solutions. This is outrageous and unacceptable. Global warming is important to me because XXXX. I demand that Verizon withdraw sponsorship of this rally immediately.

Unless Verizon pulls out of this rally, (choose whichever applies to you)

a. I am dropping my Verizon service (or will likely drop my service)
b. I am telling my friends to drop their Verizon service
c. I will never be a Verizon wireless customer

If that first number doesn't work, try these:

845-365-7700 Verizon Executive Services
908-717-3115 Verizon Escalation Hotline
240-568-2459 Verizon Executive Relations

908-559-7000 Verizon headquarterThanks so much!
