About Us
Category:
Action Team
Description:
Our mission is to engage community leaders to support CCL's policy agenda.  "Community leaders" include business owners, tribal leaders, school board members, faith leaders, locally elected officials, non-profit directors, professional athletes, celebrities, and professors in a relevant field at a large school.  Other individuals may be considered "prominent" based on the position they hold, such as a Sustainability Director.  "Engagement" often results in a public endorsement of CCL's policy agenda, but it may also take other forms - see more details in the Priorities section below.

Current Grasstops Priorities
1. Stay in close contact with your liaisons to learn
  • what community leaders are important to the Member of Congress (MOC)
  • what does the MOC need to hear from community leaders to move the MOC up the policy support ladder
  • what policies is the liaison lobbying for with the MOC
2.  Seek out leaders who have demonstrated support for sustainability, climate action and so on.
3.  Obtain support such as: testimonial videos, letters to MOCs, attendance at a lobby meeting, co-authoring an Op-Ed, and endorsements.
4.  Share effective strategies in our monthly meeting.
