"Citizens’ Climate Lobby: Political Will for a Livable World" with Paul Thompson and Tom Evans

  • Campus Center, Room 207 1600 Grand Avenue Saint Paul, MN, 55105 United States (map)

Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) has over 360 chapters in the US (in every state), working with Congress for one thing. Our laser-focus is to pass Carbon Fee and Dividend Legislation: placing a steadily rising price on carbon pollution at the source and returning the collected fees to American households. CCL does it’s work by building relationships with Congressional members and their staff through respect, admiration, and gratitude for their service and we are very non-partisan. CCL was instrumental in forming the Bi-Partisan Climate Solutions Caucus in the House of Representatives which now numbers 48 members (24 pairs from both sides of the aisle). Find out how we work and how you and your community can build political will for a livable world.
