About Our Chapter
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization working to create the political will for a livable world.  Our chapter is just one of hundreds of chapters in the nation and around the 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. During 2015 our chapter members wrote 10 letters to the editor that appeared in local newspapers. We also wrote 10 letters to our member of congress (OH 12th. Rep. Pat Tiberi) as well as participated in six meetings at his office. We authored four OpEd pieces and one article that were published. We also participated in four community outreach events in our area.  Four of our members participated in the June 2015 lobby day in Washington D.C.

On November 12th 2016 the Ohio Chapters of CCL were chosen by the Ohio Environmental Council to receive the "One to Watch" award in recognition of our emerging strength and increasing activity!
