What CCL Volunteers Do

We Work Together to Protect our Environment and the One-of-a-Kind World in which We Live

Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) wants you! As a volunteer, you’ll be a member of the fastest growing and most effective climate advocacy group.

Interested Observer

When you first join CCL, you will likely want to test the waters.  Here are the three things you can do that will make a disproportionately sized difference in just a few minutes a month

Active Member

You will work with other concerned citizens to create the political will needed to enable Congress to address greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels, the cause of climate change. Together we can protect our beautiful ecosystems, livelihoods and way of life.  To join, go to http://CitizensClimateLobby.org/, click the 'Join US' button, submit your contact information, and you will be contacted by your local chapter.  It's free to join, and you can unsubscribe any time.

Some volunteers simply spend a few minutes a month sending Congress a message that they support action to address climate change from fossil fuels:  https://citizensclimatelobby.org/write-congress-climate-action/#/27/.

Other volunteers work an average of 4-6 hours a month. Some of our volunteers dedicate more time than that. We put no upper limit on your dedication to a stable climate and livable world!

Want to know more? Please join our weekly Introductory Conference Call. We hold them every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. It is a live call, about an hour long, and there will be opportunities to ask questions.
