The Levers of Political Will
These are the five core activities that all Citizens’ Climate Lobby chapters leverage to bring citizens into the political process and to ensure their contribution is constructive and makes more effective climate action possible. We call these activities the “levers of political will.”
We train citizens how to lobby in support of strong climate solutions in our policy agenda like carbon fee and dividend by building friendly relationships with our federally elected representatives, consistently calling Congress, and engaging them on social media.
Focuses on the general public in our communities. Through this outreach we build support for climate action and carbon pricing, we make ourselves and our work known in our communities, we find new members and we build relationships in the places where we live. We invite and educate the public on climate solutions, citizen advocacy and how to participate with one’s government. We value service as a way to empower our volunteers and build important connections within our community.
We seek to educate, build partnerships with and gain the support of community leaders and non-governmental organizations, both nationally and locally.
