Citizens’ Climate Lobby

Lobbying 101: The Transformative Power of Citizen Advocacy

May 13, 2022

Learn about constituent advocacy, the advantages we hold as constituents in transforming our government and the policies we adopt, and hear stories from CCL volunteers around the country who demonstrate how citizens can build meaningful, long-term relationships with their congressional office. Joined by CCL leaders that share their stories of empowerment, Brett Cease, CCL's Education & Engagement Senior Director will be hosting Part I in the “Working With Congress” training series, designed to empower you - an important member of our volunteer network - to be ready for our annual June lobby meetings.
