Experience the profound difference you can make by creating the political will Congress needs to address climate change!
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) is a grassroots, non-partisan organization working to inspire members of Congress to be leaders for a sustainable climate. This is the first meeting of this new chapter! Elizabeth Dell, Great Lakes Regional Coordinator with CCL, will share how CCL volunteers have been successful in building bipartisan support for climate solutions and help local citizens launch the Blue Water Area Chapter of CCL.
Elizabeth will discuss CCL's progress and proposal for Carbon Fee and Dividend which would put a steadily rising fee on fossil fuels and return the net revenues to American households as a monthly dividend check. This fee would send a clear market signal discouraging fossil fuel use, and the dividend will protect lower and middle-income families from rising energy costs. In fact, about 2/3 of American households would break even or receive more from their dividend check than they would pay in higher prices.
Training will be provided on building political will through lobbying, media relations, grassroots outreach and community leader outreach.
