– To create the political will for a stable climate
– To empower individuals to have breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power
Citizens Climate Lobby Long Island is a volunteer chapter of the international organization, Citizens Climate Lobby, that works with our elected officials to implement effective climate change policies in the US and Canada, specifically by lobbying for national carbon fee and dividend legislation. We also build political will by educating our local communities about the dangers of climate change and how we can address them by transitioning to a clean energy economy.
We meet on the first Saturday of every month, from 12:00-3pm. The meeting involves planning local activities as well as participating in a conference call with the many other CCL groups around North America. Each month, a different high profile guest speaker provides us with continual learning opportunities.
We invite anyone who is interested in learning more to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is an informational conference call held each week on Wednesdays at 8PM Eastern. Call in and learn about all that we do: 1-866-642-1665 Code: 440699# or sign up for more info at citizensclimatelobby.org/introductory-call
