What we're about

Citizens’ Climate Lobby 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 our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community.

CCL organizes by establishing local chapters in congressional districts. Working as a team, you can experience the profound difference people can make by empowering and inspiring elected representatives, local media, and community.

The MI Detroit-Metro North CCL chapter meets monthly for residents in congressional districts 9, 10, 11, and 14. If you live within another district, you might be better placed within another Michigan chapter.

For more information, including joining CCL and registering to your local chapter, please visit the official CCL website (https://citizensclimatelobby.org). Click here (https://citizensclimatelobby.org/write-your-representative/#/74/) to write to congress on behalf of CCL.
