June 2024 – In the coming week, Citizens’ Climate Lobby will hold its 15th annual conference and lobby day, “Making Moves and Moving Congress,” in Washington, D.C. 

CCL will welcome more than 1,000 registrants from all 50 states, who will attend conference activities Saturday, June 8 through Monday, June 10. 

On Tuesday, June 11, conference attendees will head to Capitol Hill for hundreds of climate-focused meetings with lawmakers. They will discuss the pressing need to reduce America’s carbon pollution, focusing on legislative solutions that we hope to see Congress support and ultimately pass into law.

In addition to hundreds of lobby meetings, this year’s event includes powerhouse speakers, transformative trainings, and energizing outreach activities. 

Here’s a preview of some highlights from each day, which press are welcome to attend for interviews and visuals. (Unless otherwise noted, conference activities take place at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.)
