Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.

What we do: 

  • We lobby in support of bipartisan national legislation by building helpful, friendly relationships with our federally elected representatives, with respect, appreciation and gratitude for their service.

  • We write letters to the editor and op-eds, and meet with editorial boards to gain their editorial endorsement. Additionally, we work with digital media, radio, TV and all forms of social media.

  • We give presentations and do outreach at events to promote CCL and introduce others to the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.

  • We support our volunteer chapters with monthly conference calls, and we support the leaders of those chapters with weekly conference calls.

What we believe: 

  • Politicians don't create political will, they respond to it.

  • We believe citizens, organized by Congressional district, who are well trained and have a good system of support, can more than influence the political process. 

  • In respect for all viewpoints, even for those who would oppose us.

  • Based on what both climate scientists and economists tell us, we believe that putting a price on carbon and returning the fees to households is the best first step to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to mitigate the impacts of a changing climate.


On June 18, 2019, nine Sacramento members of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby were among 191
Californians who traveled to Washington, D.C. to join over 1500 other concerned citizen volunteers
to implore their members of Congress to co-sponsor and/or support HR 763, known as the “Energy
Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.”
The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763) will drive down America's carbon pollution and bring climate change under control, while unleashing American technology innovation and ingenuity.
