Join the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Santa Cruz Chapter
Santa Cruz, Aptos, Capitola, Watsonville, Scotts Valley, Bonny Doon, Felton, Ben Lomand, Live Oak, California
The Santa Cruz chapter focuses on CA-20, Rep. Jimmy Panetta’s district. Some of us live in CA-18, Rep. Anna Eshoo's district, and we coordinate with the Silicon Valley N chapter to lobby her.
We meet as a full chapter on the second Saturday of every month, for now on Zoom, just after the national CCL call. When it's safe to do so, we will again begin meeting in person in downtown Santa Cruz from 10 a.m til noon. We post our meetings on our FB events page about a week in advance.
Our chapter consists of teams that focus on all of the CCL levers of political will -- Media, Grassroots outreach, Grasstops outreach, Member-of-congress outreach, and Chapter development. We write letters to the editor and op eds, table to engage the community, make presentations at schools and service orgs, write, call and lobby Rep.Jimmy Panetta and/or Rep. Anna Eshoo, and engage on social media. There is no end to the team building, and we're always ready to welcome new interests and talents.
More info about CCL
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization empowering people to experience breakthroughs 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.
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.
Contact us or come to a meeting to find out how you can get involved.
