CCL

Mission

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.

2018 Climate Ride Grant: $13,658

Activities

Engaging Citizens | With over 400 local chapters, CCL empowers everyday people to work together on climate change solutions. Together they are building support in Congress for a national bipartisan solution to climate change.

Climate Advocate Training and Education | CCL trains supporters how to make meaningful contributions every day that drive Climate Action forward, whether by building relationships with their members of Congress, local businesses, or media. CCL provides training and tools to help them maximize their skills.

Creating Political Will for Climate Action | Their consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and empowering CCL supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, CCL works towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.

Successes

  • Researching and drafting effective legislation that has bipartisan appeal like H.R. 7173,  a bill to drive down carbon pollution in the United States
  • Successfully lobbying for CCL’s carbon fee and dividend legislation to price carbon and emissions in Canada beginning in 2019
  • Raising climate awareness around the world by creating chapters, offering education, resources for lobbying, and channels to media
