Together We Can Fight Climate Change and Create a Better Future

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. The Sacramento-Roseville chapter is one of 600+ active CCL chapters around the world. Together we are working to build support for effective climate change legislation that will help the world achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

What our chapter does:

  • We lobby in support of bipartisan national legislation to address the climate crisis by building helpful, friendly relationships with our our Congressional 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.
  • We give presentations and do outreach at community events to educate people about important climate change-related legislation and ways people can take action to address the climate crisis.
  • We inspire people to believe that every one of us can make a difference and build a better future.

Climate Change in Sacramento and California

Chapter Priorities

The Sacramento-Roseville chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby works to support the agenda of the national organization and also works on local issues. In 2024, we are focusing our efforts in three areas: federal legislation, voter registration, and electrification.

Federal  Legislation

To pass effective, bipartisan climate legislation, Congress needs to hear a chorus of many different voices calling for such legislation. This year our chapter is focusing on building support for the PROVE IT Act, the Energy Innovation Act, and other bills that will help address the climate crisis. Visit CCL’s Take Action page to learn more and contact your Congressional leaders about important climate legislation.

Electrification

Swapping old, inefficient appliances with new, energy-efficient models is a great way to save energy AND money! Upfront rebates from the Inflation Reduction Act will be available in California this year for low- to moderate-income consumers, and CCL is encouraging everyone to learn how to save money by going electric.

Voter Registration

2024 is an election year, and we’re working to help people get registered and vote. This is the best way to ensure that climate-friendly legislation is protected and expanded. Our members are volunteering with the Environmental Voter Project and helping people register to vote when we attend local events.
