Citizens' Climate Lobby Chapter


Anne Arundel County, parts of Prince George & Queen Anne Counties, Maryland
About Our Chapter

Citizens’ Climate Lobby empowers people to experience breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power. Our chapter is just one of hundreds of chapters across the world working to create the political will for a livable world. CCL is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization.

We are laser focused on a specific piece of legislation and a proven strategy to gain its passage. We are working for the passage of Carbon Fee and Dividend, the climate change solution economists and climate scientists alike say is the “best first-step” to preventing the worst impacts of a warming world.

Our market-based Carbon Fee and Dividend policy will drastically reduce emissions, create jobs, and support small businesses and families — all without growing government.

We’ve seen firsthand how passionate citizens who are well-trained, organized by district and with a good system of support can more than influence the political process.
