Event Description

You are invited to the 2021 Citizens’ Climate Lobby Georgia State Conference.

To get quick action on climate change, more of us need to speak to elected officials. We’re all united by a commitment to make our voices heard as we call for a healthy climate future. To talk effectively we need to have the best current information and tools. With that in mind we are fortunate to have the following guest speakers: Dr. Danny Richter, CCL VP of Government Affairs, former U.S. Congressperson Bob Inglis and Georgia Tech Professor Dr. Marilyn Brown. We will take time to discuss their messages.

For more information, please contact Henry Slack (henry.h.slack@gmail.com).

About the Organizers

Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. Our 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 our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions. In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community. Citizens' Climate Education (CCE), since its founding in 2007, has exponentially grown its global coalition to a remarkable 190,000+ registered supporters. Volunteers are organized into over 500 active chapters. Each chapter is run by a Group Leader and supported by State Coordinators and Regional Coordinators. Chapters work closely with their corresponding Congressional Liaison, who is a designated CCE volunteer leader that maintains the ongoing relationship between a specific member of Congress and local CCE chapters within that member’s district or state. At each level of our organizational model, CCE staff provides robust coordination, systems, training, and support to ensure volunteers are successful in their advocacy work. Learn more at https://citizensclimateeducation.org/ Citizens’ Climate Education (CCE) and Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) are sister organizations that complement each other in strategically building political will for impactful climate solutions. CCE is a registered 501(c)(3) organization that provides key trainings, tools, and other educational resources to help volunteers become effective advocates for climate solutions. CCL is a registered 501(c)(4) organization that supports volunteer-led and other direct lobbying efforts on specific climate legislation. Each organization has its own governing board, operating budget, and audited financials. As CCL has a more public-facing presence, most public accomplishments are attributed to it. Nevertheless, most program activities are related to climate education rather than direct lobbying efforts, and come from the CCE budget.
