The purpose of Citizens Climate Lobby is to create the political will for a sustainable climate. The group empowers individuals to have breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power.
The purpose of our meeting is to launch a Citizens Climate Lobby chapter for the Fresno region with people who are eager to lobby their elected officials and the media on Climate Legislation.

How does CCL Work? CCL uses a mix of group empowerment and support which includes monthly national conference calls with a guest speaker. CCL trains volunteers to speak powerfully to their elected officials, the media and their local communities in order to inspire members of Congress to be leaders and spokespersons for a sustainable climate. CCL volunteers meet with their members of Congress, launch letter-writing campaigns, write letters to the editor, Op/Ed pieces, and generate editorials to promote a sustainable climate.
