The Sierra Club’s latest campaign will ask people around the country to ‘adopt’ a Ford dealer in their community and schedule a meeting with the dealership. At the meeting you are instructed to encourage the dealer to sign a letter to Bill Ford, Jr. urging him to raise the fuel economy of his company’s vehicles.
“One of the most effective ways that we can influence Ford Motor Company to make the right decisions is to let them know that dealerships around the country want to sell cars, trucks, and SUVs that go farther on a gallon of gas,” say organizers.
