Action Team
Description:
To solve the climate crisis, Citizens’ Climate Lobby empowers people to use the tools of democracy to build political will for climate solutions in Congress. Our methods include education on the science, economics, and politics surrounding climate change. We meet with Members of Congress, write letters to the editors of national and local newspapers, and conduct outreach in our local communities. Most importantly we are action-oriented. Our goal is to match what scientists tell us with practical solutions that can be enacted legislatively.

This Fall, CCL is offering a 15-week Climate Advocacy Training Program for anyone interested in learning and applying CCL’s methods for climate action. Participants who successfully complete the program by December 31 will receive CCL’s Certificate of Completion, and if they are enrolled at a school in the Spring, can interview for CCL’s Campus Leaders Program to start a climate campaign or CCL chapter at their school. In addition, participants receive information about internships, events, actions, and other opportunities with CCL or partner organizations.
