1sky activists in South CarolinaPhotos of 1sky volunteers in South Carolina from their June 19 action day event. Find out how you can get involved with climate action groups.1sky.org via FlickrThis is an exciting week for environmental activist organizations. After all, they’re all about rounding up masses of grassroots supporters for just such an occasion as the expected House vote this Friday on historic climate change and energy legislation.

If you’re not tapped into the various climate action networks, Grist scanned a handful of activist groups’ websites and social media pages to pull together a list of what actions they are urging their members to take in the next 48 hours before the vote.

If our list is lacking, please amend it in the comments.
