Interested in solving climate change? You are welcome in Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL). Since 2014 our Western North Carolina chapter has been working together to get climate laws passed. We believe that the only way to tackle climate change is together. We connect over shared concerns, build consensus, and work with elected officials from every party towards climate solutions.

Together, we make a much bigger impact than we could individually by:

  • Starting productive conversations about climate solutions in our community
  • Getting more people talking about solutions
  • Building support for climate action with community leaders
  • Meeting with our members of Congress to advocate for effective climate solutions

As a Chapter we have secured over 150 business endorsements in WNC of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act and currently our main focus is on getting cities and counties throughout WNC on board with Climate/Resiliency/Sustainability Action Plans. We welcome you to attend our monthly meetings every 3rd Monday of the month from 6:30-8:30pm virtually on Zoom - details are on our Facebook page and will be emailed to you.

We also like to meet with you one-on-one to bring you up to speed. Once you sign up someone will get in touch with you. If you want to contact us directly, Steffi Rausch, our chapter leader, can be reached at , 828-242-3752.
