Regional and State Conferences


Students at a CCL conference

Citizens’ Climate Lobby has staked new territory in dealing with Congress on climate change in a way that no other environmental organization has tried. And it’s having an impact on both Congress and our volunteers.

For our regional and state conferences, we’ve developed an advanced lobby training experience that focuses on the human element of working with people: creating opportunities from obstacles, listening, building rapport, and not being limited by one’s predisposed view of other people or their predisposed view of you.

People who have been to our conferences have called them “life-changing, empowering, and inspiring.”
