Description:
Welcome to the Austin chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby!  This chapter is for Austin-area CCL members who live in TX10, TX17, TX21, TX25, and TX35 congressional districts. We meet (virtually) on the second Saturday of each month right after the CCL national call that takes place at noon CST. The links for these calls are sent a few days before the meeting via Community email. Or you can contact austin@citizensclimatelobby.org to get details.

The Austin chapter structure is guided by the Five Levers of Political Will. Members are encouraged and guided toward the volunteer activities within these levers that most fit their passions and skills. If you want to learn more about any of these outreach categories you can contact a Lever Leader.

Did you just join Citizens' Climate Lobby?
Start here!

First step: Attend CCL's intro call

If you have not already done so, attend an informational session. You can sign up for a live or recorded session here: https://citizensclimatelobby.org/informational-session/. Learn more about Citizens’ Climate Lobby and how you can make a difference in creating the political will for legislation that will put us on the path to reduce the emissions that are changing our climate. This session will introduce you to CCL's respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate activism that builds on shared values rather than partisan divides. At the end of the hour call, you'll feel empowered and ready to take action!

Second step: Sign up for the Monthly Calling Campaign

We ask every member of CCL in Austin to commit to calling their congress member once a month to advocate for carbon fee and dividend and, in particular, for HR 763, The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. https://energyinnovationact.org/. If you've never called your representative, it may sound scary, but you'll do it once and then think "wow, that was easy!"  To learn more about the calling campaign and to sign up, go to: https://cclusa.org/mcc

Third step: Attend our next monthly meeting

CCL chapters around the country meet via Zoom on the second Saturday of each month. A national call usually features a speaker. When that meeting winds down at about 12:45, we all switch to our local meetings on a different Zoom line.

Local meeting start time: 12:50 (to end by 2:00)
