Citizens' Climate Lobby Chapter


Wilmington and Newark, Delaware
About Our Chapter
Welcome to the Wilmington-Newark chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby! We launched our chapter in June 2016, and we are adding our voices to the hundreds of chapters across the world working to create the political will for a livable world.

Delawareans are united in a single congressional district. We invite Delawareans in New Castle County to join our chapter. Residents of Kent and Sussex counties are currently working to form a second chapter. You can sign up for this new Lower Delaware chapter here.

The Wilmington-Newark CCL group leader was out of town during the usual meeting weekend in May, so we're having a more social gathering at a special time and place. Please join us for a happy hour with appetizers and drinks on Sunday, May 21, from 4–6:00 p.m. in the library room at Caffé Gelato restaurant on Main Street in Newark. This is a great time for new and potential members to get to know us and have your questions answered!

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization empowering people to experience breakthroughs exercising their personal and political power. 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.

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.
